Ok, first of all you need to understand that cats who live outside have shorter lives than inside kitties. Average lifespan is 5 years or less outside and can be up to 20 years inside. They wander and roam and can get very far away and get lost, wild animals including raccoons will fight them and if there is a road, they will find it. Secondly, if not spayed they will have kittens, each could have up to 6 kittens in about 2 litters a year so soon, you would have lots of kitties. And they will still need all their shots, it is even more important if outside running about. Third, if they love being with people, and are not allowed in, they will be lonely and may go looking for someone to cuddle and lap sit with. Trust me, nothing is worse than looking for a lost pet everyday and never knowing if it was lying somewhere suffering and waiting for you or is safe and loved in someone elses house. Perhaps before you make your decision, you could talk to your Dr and see if there is something that you could do for your allergies to keep the cats, perhaps go to a allergist even.
