    They are closer to the shoes MJF wore in the 2010 remake of the BTTF trailer, so it wouldn't be bad to buy the Nike Tennis Classics, if you want to save money.

    You could go the extremely cheap route. I think it cost $20 total including shoes and paint. So far they have held up through the winter and still wearing them almost everyday.

    Here is the tutorial

    Yeah i saw them as well.

    I've gone for the cheaper ones here, virtually identical save for the less thick soles.

    Nike Court Majestic White Gym Red - RMKstore

    if you are in UK you can get them here: 35 in either red or blue.

    Nike Court Majestic Mens Trainers: Amazon.co.uk: Shoes & Accessories

    i think the court majestic and tennis classic have been released at the same time recently as they are both identical apart from the thicker soles on the more expensive ones and different tongue.

    just got my pairs of the court majestics aka tennis classics.

    i got a pair each in red and blue.

    both are great.

    i would love to buy that Buy *Nike*Tennis Classic AC*- Mens Fashion Online at Size?

    as the sole is much thicker and closer to the bruin than the ones on the court majestics which are lower.

    I found this at Salvation Army today. The side stitches are the same as the original Bruin but the from does not have the stitches. Can anyone identify what Nike model is it?

    I got ultra lucky and bought a pair of real Nike Bruins in my size for $70 on etsy. I wear a size 8. They have blue accents instead of red so I'm painting them with red Angelus paint.

    I've found that buying an all-white pair of Court Royales and painting them with Angelus Scarlet Red (with a couple thin layers of GW Mephiston Red over the top) look great, and are fairly comfortable even for me. I'll probably wear them out pretty fast, but at least I can make them again without having to pay too much.

    Okay, so I've taken a few photos of them and just imported them straight from my camera. Keep in mind that I just painted them a week ago and I've been wearing them for a couple days now. The paint's flaking off at the back, but only the back as far as I can tell. It may be the Mephiston Red though.

    I don't know if I wasn't thinning the Angelus paints enough, but I couldn't get a smooth finish with it. As soon as i started applying thinned layers of Mephiston to it, the finish on them instantly looked much better. And the colour is much better too. I don't like Scarlet Red or Chili Red, it should be somewhere in between the two.
