Shoe shopping

For my birthday, my mother offered to buy me a pair of shoes, so now I have to decide which shoes.

I'm having trouble focusing on what kind of shoes.
I could kind of use some black/semi-formal shoes. I don't really have any right now, primarily because I tend to like more colorful and interesting shoes a lot more. So after searching around, here are my favorite picks for those:
Black shoes 1
Black shoes 2

They're both by irregular choice, and I think they manage to be black and professional without being boring.

I'm also considering some non-snow boots. Here are some fun ones I'm considering:
Yummy boots one
The most Victorian boots two


I also could use some sandals, since summer is coming, and last years' sandals fell apart after some serious use.
There are many fantastic sandals, although it's important to me that they not have things that go between your toes, and preferably have some slight padding to the insole:
Practical sandals
Sandals with rugged soles
Super decorated sandals
AWESOME but kinda pricey/not so rugged sandals
Fun but maybe cheaply made sandals
Silver kinda less airy sandals
Missin' my old silver shoes sandals

Thoughts?

I vote for:

Black shoes 2
Victorian boots
Sandals with rugged soles

I can't narrow it down further because they each have their good points and purpose.

Yeah, I really just need to narrow down what kind of shoes I want! Staring at the web without anything particular in mind was just over-whelming!

I'm having shoe envy over all of them.
I can't really wear sandals because 1) I work in an environment where sharp, pointy things often end up on the floor or falling near one's feet, and 2) I need arch support to keep my arches and shins from feeling like death. I scored a pair of vintage Fluevogs recently though, and I think my feet fell in love.

Love the second black shoes (sexier and more versatile) and the brown boots though.
