Avenue A by Adidas Summer 2017 Box Review – Version #2
Avenue A by Adidas is a quarterly fitness and running subscription box. Every season they send subscribers at least 3 premium fitness items, (most will be sized).
For the first time, Avenue A sent two variations of items in a box. This is my review of the alternate variations. (See my original review of the Summer 2017 Avenue A Adidas Box for comparison.)
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!
This box was sent to us early for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Summer box is curated by Wanderlust.
And inside there is an opportunity for a subscriber to win a ticket to a Summer 2017 festival of their choice.
The info cards are a little different with this box. Instead of a fold-out card, we have cards for the shoe and curator:
And some healthy recipe cards:
Cardamom Cardio Green Smoothie:
Kale Greek Salad:
Now, onto the items!
adidas Edge Luxe 2 shoes – Value $95?
These shoes aren’t available for sale yet, so I’m guessing on the price. (I love that Avenue A subscribers get early access to Adidas products.)
These edge lux shoes have a textured fabric upper, with mesh details on the sides.
These shoes are SO lightweight. They provide good support and fit snuggly.
The patterned material is gorgeous!
Wanderflex Iconic Three-Quarter Tights – Value $55
(Subscribers will receive either this color or the black print.)
Out of all the tights/leggings/capris I’ve received from this subscription box, these are my favorite. The pattern is fabulous (even in the brighter red compared the black varitiona), and my favorite part is the wide waistband. It’s a high waist cut, with a wide, flattering waistband. It’s perfect for making your stomach look just a little flatter 😉
And this capri pant is part of the adidas sustainable product program. The material is 79% recycled polyester / 21% elastane interlock.
Wanderflex Seamless Bra – Value $35
(Subscribers will receive either this bra or a gray bra.)
Out of the two bras sent this season, both are great, but this one is my favorite. It is SO soft and stretchy. I like the removable cups, and adjustable straps, too.
The back panel has a mesh detail for ventilation, too. (90% nylon / 10% elastane seamless)
Wanderflo Tank Top – Value $35
This top has the Wanderlust logo screen printed in front, with a mesh panel in back for added ventilation:
The material is a little see-through. And the arm holes are larger, so you’ll be able to see your sports bra underneath. (50% recycled polyester / 25% cotton / 25% viscose single jersey)
I really like the simple design and high neckline. This is a very versatile piece for me. Here it is on with the rest of this box:
(I added the Adidas jacket from the Fall 2016 Box since my arms are way too pale right now!)
Verdict: First, here’s my original verdict on this box from the first review:
This box has a value of about $220-245 depending on the value of the shoes. I love every single item in this box. The Wanderlust line for Adidas is great – these are pieces I would pay full-price for, and I’ll likely buy some items from their line now!
One thing to call out, though, is that this is the first Avenue A box that has included 4 items instead of 5. (Usually the value is higher, too.) They only guarantee 3 items in a box and made no mention of guaranteed value, but compared to other boxes I first felt like something was missing.
That being said, I think this is the most wearable and versatile box for me – I LOVE the outfit and shoes!
Next, comparing the two variations, I really like both options, but my favorite 3/4 tights are the black ones, and my favorite bra is the coral one from this box.
