Vintage Heat and Defunkd (in blog format) began around the same time in 2008 and we immediately became link partners given our mutual passion/obsession with vintage gear. Plus, a vintage tee and a pair of old Nikes is a damn complimentary style, a-la DJ AM, need we say more?
I checked in with VH daily as Karl explored the trials and tribulations of collecting in the vintage Nike universe. eBay Buyer, seller, occasional wearer – Vintage Heat documents this niche hobby through the eyes of a Nike expert. But much to my and many readers’ dismay the blog went dormant last year as Karl began trotting the globe. Then the internet vultures swooped in and began spamming every post’s comment section.
We are pleased to announce that we recently acquired this epic vintage Nike site and made it a part of Defunkd viewable through our Nike category. We wanted to preserve and protect its legacy as one of the best resources of vintage Nikes on the web. In honor of this union we’re also starting a new gallery section to document vintage Nike t-shirts.
Big thanks to Karl for all his hard work and best of luck to him on all his future projects.
