Running shoe recommendations?

I'm just starting C25k, with the intention to run my first 5k June 15th.  I need some good running shoes...a friend recommended Hoka One One's (hokaoneone-na.com).  Anyone have any experience with these?  They look funny, but I've read really positive reviews on several different websites. 

Or, do you have any other recommendations for good running shoes?  TIA!

  • Get fitted.  I didn't do this until after completing the C25K, but wish had before.  What I've always gone with turned out to be not the best option for my foot...and I didn't realize I should be going up a size as well.

  • Being a gymnast for so many years, i'm pretty in tune with my body.  I've learned that my feet HATE supportive running shoes (which explains the shin splints and stress fractures I had during track season in highschool).  I've actually starte

  • DEFINITELY go get yourself fitted at a genuine running focused store. And, keep getting fitted, especially as a new runner. I started out need a lot of support, then less as i kept running. I started my C25K journey about a year ago and i'm on my third pa
