Avenue A by Adidas Subscription Box Review – Summer 2016
Avenue A by Adidas is a quarterly fitness and running subscription box. Every season they send subscribers at least 3 premium items, (most will be sized).
If you are looking for a fitness/workout-gear box – I can’t recommend this one enough. I’m thrilled with the value of these boxes so far!
The packaging on this box is fantastic! I love the compartments, the color/print – everything!

adidas’ miCoach Fit Smart watch – Value $150
This was the spoiler item for the Summer box, and it alone is worth the entire cost of the box! Love it!
I’ve tried FitBit and the Apple Watch, so I was curious to see how this compared.
Here is the underside that tracks your heart rate:
And here it is on:
It is bigger than any other fitness tracker I’ve used. The good news is the band is very comfortable and you can get a really snug fit:
I recommend downloading the Adidas Train and Run app to sync with the watch:
This is designed to be a little different than some other fitness/activity trackers since you have coaches who talk you through workouts.
And here is the standard activity view on the app:
FYI – you’ll want to sync your phone and watch frequently – the watch can only store 10 hours of data.
I’ve only been using this for a few hours, but I’m looking forward to giving it more of a test run over the next few days. My main concern is the width of the tracker, but it still is pretty comfortable, so we’ll see if it is a keeper!
Edge Lux Bounce Running Shoe – Value $85 Value
These sneakers have a stretch-fit tongue, wide laces, and they are really lightweight.
I love the blue on blue look, and they also come with a pair of lighter blue laces:
These are really comfortable and versatile. Comparing to the Spring Box sneakers, those ones have more bounce, so I like that Adidas is sending a mix of sneakers for various preferences/activities.
Adilette Ultra Slide – $35 Value
I LOVE slides (especially Adidas slides) so I was thrilled to see these in the spoilers! These slides are made with Cloudfoam, so they are super cushiony and comfortable. (If you’ve ever stood on those anti-fatigue mats for the office or kitchen, the feel is similar!)
And these are velcro so you can adjust them for a perfect fit:
I know not everyone loves slides, but if you are in the pro-slides group, I recommend checking out the Adidas Custom Slide maker!
I totally made myself and my husband Eric custom slides for this past Christmas:
Maybe I’ll get us red and green track suits this year 😉
Supernova Tank – Value $35
This is a lightweight and somewhat loose-fitting tank. It seems like the perfect tank for summer heat – it is made with climalite sweat-wicking fabric.
And the back has three big reflective stripes:
M10 Running Shorts – Value $32
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about these shorts since they are very short (to me), but after trying them on I’m a fan! (They have an inner lining, so my fears of these shorts riding up as I’m wearing them were quickly taken care of!)
Adidas Freestyle Hairband – Value $16
This headband is perfect for me – wide, stretchy, and it has enough grip to seriously stay in place:
And here I am (with my dog/permanent photo buddy Buckles) in the tank and shorts:
I tend to stick to all black workout gear (case in point – my black hoodie) so these pieces will fit in nicely!
Verdict: I’m such a fan of this subscription! (I’m seriously telling all my friends and family about it!) I think the value is insane ($353 this box), and the items are all so useful and thoughtfully curated – this box is perfect workout gear for summer!
