Meet The Owner


My name is Max Lindley and I'm the owner and operator of The Retro Recovery!

I've been reselling sneakers since I was 12 years old. I won an auction on eBay for a pair of Fire Red 4s for $100 and the rest, as they say, was history.

After selling and collecting sneakers for four years, I began thrifting - to find cheaper sneakers. I believe my first find was a 90s Walt Disney World tee and I thought it was the most obscure thing I'd ever seen. I loved the graphic, the fact it was made in USA, the colors just popped, once again, I was hooked. I then started thrifting weekly and slowly a hobby turned into a business.

I started The Retro Recovery's instagram page on January 3rd, 2020. I'm so thankful for the support I've gotten and continue to get. I hope you all can join me in recovering the best vintage clothing and sportswear.

Currently I'm listing vintage clothing on the website daily while also traveling across the tristate & popping up in different cities throughout the North Eastern United States!

Be sure to follow on Instagram ( @TheRetroRecovery ) to stay up to date with where we're popping up next!
