Adidas Avenue A is a quarterly subscription box designed for women who are active and always on-the-go. The box contains premium running and training items – both apparel and footwear – that are handpicked by a well-known fitness experts and fashion trend-setters. It costs $150 per quarter to subscribe, and each box will be delivered right to your door.
This giant box arrived in an outer cardboard box. The box itself will be perfect to reuse underneath a bed!
Avenue A by Adidas box promises to bring items that meets style and performance at the same time. Looks stylish to me! Instead of coming in a shoe box the shoes came in a divided section of the outer box. (This way you can’t return your crazily discounted shoes for a refund.)
A tri-fold booklet contains the curator’s letter and info about all the goodies!
This quarter, the box is designed and curated by the creative forces behind Well+Good magazine – Kate Citron and Rebecca Willa Davis – who bring their unique take on urban culture, healthy living and creative energy to Avenue A subscribers.
When you sign up you have the opportunity to specify each size for every item. Shoes go up to size 12, apparel goes up to XL.
Everything in the Fall 2016 box!
GT Supernova Bra ($45) This box included a matching capri and running bra in the cool “Vapor Green” pattern. The bra comes with high-support and climalite to wick moisture and sweat away from your skin. I love the lower profile rounded neck.
The straps are cross-back which helps keeps everything in place. I was bummed to see that this was the same item that appeared this spring, just in a different pattern. The bra has sewn in padding/lining.
Supernova Three-Quarters Tight ($59.99) The matching running tights also feature climalite to keep you comfortable during a run.
They also have a cool mesh design at the calf!
These aren’t exactly the same as the tights in the spring box but do feature the same drawstring at the waist and back pocket.
There’s also a little key pocket!
Performer Tank ($18) This tank has a high neckline and drop armholes and is also made with climalite. Adidas is very worried about my skin comfort, which is a great thing.
Unfortunately for me, I didn’t feel comfortable in this shirt, as I don’t like exposing my back fat.
Z.N.E. Hoodie ($100) But I guess I can cover up with this jacket! It’s quite thick and heavy and although the white is stylish, it’s incredibly impractical, because this thing will be impossibly (and permanently) filthy after one wear.
The hoodie is double lined, which is great to keep you warm. But the drop shoulders on this are odd! I think it’s supposed to be a fashion-forward version of the traditional sweats hoodie.
adizero Boston ($119.95 These ultra lightweight running shoes are made with a boost foam midsole. And they’re black! No color whatsoever. I love wearing black but I typically pick a really bright sneaker, so this is really different! It’s an excellent selection for fall because of some of the great features of this shoe.
I didn’t remember hearing about this Continental branding – the rubber outsole provides optimal grip in wet conditions.
They are super breathable with Coolever mesh all over. These shoes were narrower than the previous shoes in this subscription – you may want to try on and home and exchange if needed! (I opted to exchange mine).
The boost foam is designed to stay cushy even through cold weather runs. This shoe commemorates the Boston Marathon and its legacy of runners with the courage and commitment to push themselves.
This is a great box for runners, and even if you’re not, you’ll probably really be into all but one or two items. The cost savings is really worth it (the value is about $343 retail!) and the celebrity curations keep it fun. I think they may have had some shipping issues, because they started spoiling the winter box before this one even shipped!
