I suppose buying the best sneakers you can afford would make a tough job a little more pleasant. If they are confiscated do to style, color or build,,,, oh well

Minimalist footwear IS authorized as running shoes per MARADMIN.
However, I would not recommend bringing it to OCS, because you will likely want the greater support of traditional running shoes for the paths you will be running on, and additionally because whatever type of shoe you bring there is a good chance it will get destroyed over the course of OCS. A good old, well broken in pair of regular running shoes will serve you best.

Additionally, Beltayn is right on the mark -- your shoes are going to get trashed at OCS. Have fun!
