OK, stupid question time!

In 8 days I leave Australia for a 12-month World Tour.

After Chile and Peru, I'll be wandering around Europe and then probably
settling for a few months in the UK.

Even at a time of war and high prices, my greatest worry is over footwear.

I can only spare space for 2-3 pairs of shoes, one will be my comfortable
Tailwinds, and another will be some reef-style sandals. Annnyway, that
leaves me perilously short of something likely to pass as reasonable evening
wear for the feet.

I'm assuming that bars/restaurants/clubs in Europe (France, Italy, Spain,
UK, etc) have some restrictions on entry -- i.e., closed shoes, no sneakers,

And so I need something lightweight, presentable, yet still likely to get me
in the door.

Would any of these be at all appropriate?

Actually, just thought that they might leave my feet cold. I'm not used to
having to think about the potential of really cold weather!
