Looking for feedback on MTB/Touring bike shoes

I am a bit spoilt for choice choosing bike shoes.

I am looking for clip-less, walkable, touring/commuting, mixed road shoes.

I know I can't have the best in all categories for a reasonable prize (~150$ upper limit)
but they should at least be somewhat breathable, more or less water resistant and I think I prefer laces.

I gonna use them on a Jamis Gravel Bike with Crackbrother's DoubleShot III pedals

After some research, I came up with this selection:

Giro - Chamber II; 525g; 150$
Giro - Rumbler VR; 430g; $100; Lack weather protection, usable with flats, size small?, material flimsy?
Vaude - Men's TVL Pavei; 390g; 110
Vaude - AM Downieville Low; 398g; 115; bad ventilation?
Five Ten - Kestrel Lace; 484g; $67.48-$150; size rather big; bad ventilation?, good weather protection
Five Ten - Hellcat; 565g, 90$-150$; usable with flats
Shimano - SH-AM501 - MTB Gravity Shoes; 465g; 80$
Sepcialized - 2FO Cliplite Lace; 379g; $74.99-$120.00; Narrow?

So my question:
Does anybody have some information/experience with one of these shoes.
Especially for choosing the right size. I normally have EURO 42-43; US 9-10; UK 8.5-9.5
but shoes are sometimes one number smaller or bigger and I have to order them, so that would be a really valuable information.
