  1. Just curious: who needs 4 new pairs of running shoes per year? Is this subscription really only useful for long distance runners? Or maybe it’s reflecting the whole “athleisure” trend that I’m so behind on, and people just like having variety for their everyday shoes.

    This box looks like a great value and I always enjoy seeing the reviews. But I won’t let myself spend lots of $ on exercise clothing until I exercise more regularly.

    Does having nice activewear make you want to exercise more? lol

    • I agree about the shoes but having clothes I’m excited to wear does seem to get me to exercise more regularly. And I cant use the excuse of my workout clothes be in the laundry anymore…

    • I do…

    • I wish it did make me exercise.

    • Most “experts” say you should change your running shoes every 300-500 miles.

      So if you run every day, that’s an average of 5.5 miles a day (500/90). I would say that’s pretty typical for an average runner. (With the caveat that I consider myself an average runner, and I average 5 miles a day).

    • I wear athletic shoes daily and have plantar fasciitis. I wear out shoes in 3-4 months. They may look fine but the tread or cushion is worn just enough that it irritates my feet. I also have read that serious runners replace their shoes at this rate also.

  2. Its odd how these ladies that provided the info didnt include a pic of the items.

    • I have been checking like 10 times since this morning to see if a pic has been added. I am with you, how do you know the contents but do not have a pic?

  3. We could have used the sunglasses in the summer box 🙄 Given the fact that we only got 4 items . Ever since last year and up to the Hannah B box the curators are not impressive and the boxes seem off …

    • So true!

    • I so agree. It’s fall. They need scarfs, backpacks, sweaters, socks and long sleeve shirts. Not sunglasses. Sunglasses are hard too because they are not a one size fit all.

    • Sunglasses are needed year round. The sun can always have a negative effect on your eyes regardless of the time of year. And that includes when it’s cloudy.

  4. I can’t seem to find a picture of these, I’ve been googling like crazy and only find different models in pink/purple. 🙁

  5. I wish it was a long sleeve top rather than a tank. We have gotten so many tanks and it’s cold here in the fall. I, too, would rather that fitness tracker than sunglasses (as I wear prescription glasses). Other than that, I like the box.

  6. I’m glad to finally get colorful shoes!!

    I think it’s funny that Adidas hasn’t put up what the contents of the summer box are on their website – almost as if they’re embarrassed by minimal contents of the box and don’t want to market it.

    • Haha! I thought that too! They have spring, and then the fall spoiler, but no summer of 4 items…

  7. I’m so glad I cancelled last minute! I can’t wear sunglasses because of glasses and here’s no hoodie, bummer!!!!

  8. Cannot believe still no spoilers, even my box will be delivered tomorrow 🙂 Cannot wait for the great box (not that I don’t have plenty of sunglasses). As folks mentioned earlier, you cannot possibly please everyone all the time, way to go, Avenue A!

    • I mean spoiler pictures.

  9. Hmm, I’m not *mad* at this box, though I need to see pictures. I’m feeling a big disconnect between the curators and the contents, though, and that feels like a missed opportunity to me.

    I’m not an adult who plays soccer, but I have kids who play and am hanging around the pitch 3-4 times a week. I love soccer style, even as streetwear. And, mileage may vary, but none of this looks like it fits the idea that soccer players curated this. I mean, sunglasses? 😂

    Not to say this may not end up being a great box. But I was super pumped by the theme, so can’t help but feel a bit disappointed.

    • I agree 100% with this. I was so excited for the soccer theme curators which is why I stayed after the summer box. They could have taken this a whole different direction

    • Very good point. I actually adjusted my sizing slightly, thinking that I would share much of this with my soccer-playing daughter. Everything is still very useable, between the two of us though.

  10. I was recently diagnosed with Plantar fasciitis. The only change I have made is switching from Asics to Adidas shoes for my everyday …. So looks like those will be up for grabs. I will wait and see on the rest when they arrive. I agree with others that sunglasses and tank seem more summer than fall.

  11. I love this sub, however the summer box and now the fall box are disappointing. This box screams summer to me. But i loved all the others. I’m going to give it til the winter box before I cancel.

  12. To each her own: Other than the black Boston sneaks, this is the only remotely cute pair of shoes they’ve sent in the past 1.5 years. In my ever humble opinion, that is. ; )

  13. I don’t mind colorful shoes but makes you wonder if this is why they didn’t spoil the shoes from the beginning …..hmmm.. 🙂

  14. Any pictures???

    • I did a google image search, found matches for everything listed, except of course the sunglasses. You can search them in the adidas website.

  15. I’ll have to see the box before I make any decisions, but I’m ready for some color! :o) It seems that Adidas is being pretty generous with this one, although I agree it seems more like a summer box than fall. I live on the beach in NC, so tanks are great, but my favorite box so far was the Spring 2017 box… LOVE that hoodie! I’m 5’10, so it was the perfect length.

    I wear prescription lenses and not sure why many of those who have prescriptions don’t want them. I’ve taken quite a few sunglasses (from Judith Leiber to Ray Ban to Costa to Oakley to Nike) and had prescription lenses put in (though for Costa and Oakley their labs have to make the lenses). Anyway, if you like them, that’s an option. Especially excited if they’re sporty, or trendy ones that also have rubber on the nose so they don’t slide down while being active and glistening. ;o) Fingers crossed!!

    • Cost! Prescription lenses aren’t cheap and that’s assuming you have a recent enough prescription that an optometrist would be willing to put them in for you (some want it to be less than 6 months old).

      I’m not excited to pay $150 for a box where I can’t use one of the items unless I spend even more money.

  16. I love purple and can’t wait to get those shoes! That is the reason I subscribed this time, I’ve worn a hole in the gym shoes I have now and that brand has shut down, Skora, for the time being. So considering I didn’t have to shop around and choose the shoes myself, and these have a great running review, and the color is my fave, I’m a satisfied subber! And then getting a sports bra, black leggings, and a tank…plus sunglasses that will hopefully be sports friendly…it’s a majorly good deal. Couldn’t have bought all that for $150 on my own, even on sale! In the minority, but I’m super excited to get this box!

    • It says the leggings are blue, FYI.

      • Thanks for the correction Jenny K! Blue, black…at least it’s not some geometric craziness, I have enough pairs of those already lol.

        • Agreed! And I have a million black leggings as it is do something different, but but crazy, sounds good to me.

          • Ugh…that should’ve said, “so something different and NOT crazy…”

    • I’m excited too, but I really liked the summer box so I’m definitely in the minority. If course I’d have liked another item in it, but it was a cute, comfortable outfit

      • I thought the summer box was awesome. But, I also seem to be in the minority that I really don’t care what things look like if they function really well for me. I once had running shoes that had weird black splotches on a white background and pink and purple trim. They were hideous. I called them my cow shoes. But they worked best for my feet…

  17. Ooh! I am super excited about finally getting a pair of actual running shoes and not the “I wanna look like I work out, but really I’m just taking a selfie” shoes. Color is good because it hides the dirt from the road, so as long as it’s not black/white/grey like they have been the last few boxes, I’m good.

    I can always use a spare set of sunglasses, and I wear Rx sunglasses, but in a pinch, it’s nice to have a spare.

    I mix and match my stuff so much, I’m good if it doesn’t make a matchy-matchy look.

  18. I’m still holding out hope that only the European subscribers received sunglasses and we’ll receive the new adidas chameleon hr in the US. #wishfulthinking. Otherwise why would they have been so secretive about this box?

    • I was hoping we might get the Chameleon as well. Hope for winter?

      • I would looooove a chameleon so let’s hope for winter! Would be awesome to get to try them before anyone else.

    • I would love one too!!! Let’s hope if not in this box, the next one!

    • There are no European subscribers. AAA only ships within USA.

  19. Pictures please!

  20. It’s not horrible but I have to agree with others that Adidas missed the boat by not including a layering piece. It didn’t need to be a jacket but some sort of outerwear even if super light weight would have been ideal for a Fall box.

  21. You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.

    • What??

      • Lmaoooooooo

    • I was thinking the same thing! I LOL when I read something along the lines of “I hate it when they send sunglasses, for those of us who don’t have ears, how am I going to wear it?”
      “I hate it when they send flip flops in the summer, for those of us who don’t have toes, how can I wear it?” Hahahahahah!!!

      I say Adidas does a great job, some boxes I like more than others but they are never going to hit all the points. If you want exactly what you want, then go to the store or online and buy exactly what you want 🙂

      • Lol exactly!

      • Agreed – it’s odd how some folks are now wanting to demand a refund. The whole point of a subscription is that you are paying for a surprise! And Adidas delivered what they promised.

      • I feel the same way, isn’t that the fun/point of subscription boxes? Otherwise you might as well just go to the store or shop online and get the same boring whatever as usual. The items i don’t like or won’t use, I sell or give to family and friends. No fuss!

        • I’ve actually been pushed beyond my comfort zone with the Rita Ora box but I used every item and even love wearing that huge Banned from Normal hoodie. I’ve used every single pair of shoes received including the slides. I worn out the Adizero Boston from last Fall box.
          The discovery is the fun part for me. Just for the record, I have both ears and all my toes. 🙂

      • Yes agreed! How tough for these sub companies!

      • Lol!!! Very funny and on point!

    • Ya, I don’t know that you exactly hit that nail on the head susan. Certainly a valiant effort though.

  22. I was hoping I could get this box but it looks like I’ll have to wait until the winter edition, oh well 🙁

  23. A bit disappointed there’s another tank in a box- would have preferred a long sleeve shirt since it’s a fall box. Other than that, not too mad at the variety of the items (although if the colors are right, then it doesn’t sound like its a cohesive outfit like past boxes).

    Very curious to see what sunglasses are included.. what’s on their website are all pretty cute, so fingers crossed. Also a bit confused on where you all are seeing the color combo – the only ones up on the site are grey/neon and a blue pair. But I do like the style.

  24. Sounds like a nice box overall but I feel like the spring box and this fall box should have traded places. I loved the spring box but remember feeling like it felt a little fall-ish and now the fall box is feeling a little spring-ish. Last year they did a good job of taking the season into account during the box curation but this year has been a little all over the place.

    • I agree, Casey. Part of why I canceled this box before it shipped was due to concerns the items would be too ‘warm’ for me in Texas. But this looks more like a spring time box to me too.

  25. How are there no pictures yet?!?

  26. Oh wow the shoes are HIDEOUS :(. I wasn’t completely thrilled with summer’s box but felt like people were over reacting. The fall box is horrible!

      • Thanks for linking that performance review! Great info, Lisabrelle 🙂

    • The shoes are hideous for real!!!

    • i also think the shoes are ugly as hell. Oh well someone in my friends or family will love them. I will pawn them off on them.

  27. Purple is just about the only color I don’t like (I can even deal with pink!), and this is my first month, so I missed out on the trend of more neutral colored shoes. That said, the value is there, so if I hate anything I’ll sell it on Ebay. I wish it were a little more exciting for me, but at least I don’t feel that it was a waste of money.

    • If you don’t like the shoes, they’re pretty easy to trade on the swap site, and since the RV is high, you can still end up with something you like.

  28. I don’t know why there are so many negative comments about this box. People complain they get too many grey shoes. Now they get fun colorful shoes and there is still something to complain about. I looked the shoes up online and they look fun!!! Then there are complaints that past boxes had too few items and now this box is packed full of goodies, yet it isn’t good enough because it didn’t include a jacket. As to complaints about receiving sunglasses, its unfortunate that some people require prescription lenses, but that fact doesn’t mean that sunglasses are a poor choice. This box is VERY generous in value. Great job Adidas Avenue!!!

    • It’s a public forum- good or bad opinions should be welcomed. It helps others to discern if they should purchase subscriptions or not. Let people praise, let them complain- this is what this forum is all about, our love and dislike with subscription boxes.

      • Exactly!!! 😍 This is why we’re all here, right?!😜

        • I find comments like ‘hideous’ or ‘super ugly’ or ‘ugly AF’ to be very distsateful and mean. There are going to be people that like them and there’s no need to be so aggressive with how much you DON’T like them. Can’t someone just say ‘they’re not for me or they’re not my style.’ Why be sooo harsh?

          • Thank you!! I haven’t seen them, don’t know what they look like… But someone(s) put work into designing them. Someone(s) put work into choosing them for the box. It’s just a matter of respect….

          • I wouldn’t mind purple and pink if the tights matched ONE of those colors…

    • I think if some of the negative comments weren’t so aggressive, it wouldn’t bother people as much. I can see both sides but I have to admit there is a risk people assume when you subscribe. It’s an unknown box and you can’t please everyone. I do think this box is still pretty cool especially since the curator differs every season. It’s fun to try stuff I normally wouldn’t have even seen and I love seeing what each curator ultimately comes up with. I definitely think it’s difficult to curate a collection knowing you can’t please everyone but still trying to balance what their own taste with the general mass.

    • I feel like it’s the same people that complain on boxycharm having too many neutral eyeshadow palettes or nude lipsticks, then being outraged when they put bright colors in a box

      • LOL! Exactly.

  29. Living in Texas I am not upset about the Fall box not including warmer clothing. I am super excited about this box and can’t wait for it to get here Thursday! This box consistently delivers high quality merchandise that I absolutely love! I even wear the Banned from Normal stuff around the house!

    • I agree, they have consistently sent us quality products. I didn’t get the chance to wear my Banned from Normal hoodie because my son got a hold of it first.

    • This is my 6th box, and honestly I thought about cancelling because of the low value spoiler. But I am thrilled. I am a sunglass addict, and I run in dog agility and walk them every morning, so I go through running shoes like no tomorrow. And I love supernova ingots because of the fit and the zipper pocket in the back, couldn’t be happier. Plus I live in Texas, although I would really like a jacket. The ZNE jacket that we got in last fall I love it so much I ended up buying one in black, grey, peach and turquoise. Adidas if you ar reading, I need a jacket for winter. Kind of disappointing last winter there was no jacket.

    • I’m in Houston, so I agree with your comment about the items not being for warmer weather. I can get use of a tank nearly year-round as each year our ‘winter’ seems to get warmer and warmer.

      • Fellow Houstonian here, and I love jogging around Buffalo Bayou when it starts getting cooler. I also am thrilled with the spoilers since I NEVER need warm workout clothing.

        Sunglasses are exciting (really) and I can never have enough. I can’t wait to actually receive the box… supposedly tomorrow!

    • Amen!!! But as the saying goes “You can’t please everyone”. 🙂

  30. I am really excite about this box. I love that it is again a complete outfit and has color. I promise not to look anymore until I get my box tomorrow, hahaha. I will stick with this sub! I was scared that they only had one spoiler, but they delivered.

  31. Hmmmmmm. This was my first Adidas box so I’m hoping I fall in love when I receive, but I definitely agree that it’s more summer-y than I was expecting. I, too, expected a jacket and some more mellow colors. I’m hoping I love it, BUT also hoping I can return the whole box if not.

    Any ideas which sunglasses? I hope they’re not too sporty looking, tbh.

    • I hope so too!
      I looked at their selection of women’s sunglasses on their websites. Only one of the models seemed more sporty, the others were actally nice.
      I wouldn’t mind if it was A0M000 sunglasses or the round originals as it would be different from my current collection of Rx and non-rx sunglasses.

  32. I wish the tank were longer, but I’m happy

  33. Oh THANK YOU! Finally a pair of shoes that offer mild stability! And I love color, so I’m pretty happy with the shoes. And I can always use another tank for running.

    The sunglasses and big no for me. Count me in as another person who needs Rx sunglasses.

  34. Well this makes it easier to cancel. This is not a fall box. Summer was low value. Spring box looked like a fall box. They just dont know what they are doing. This was my 5th box and I may have continued if they had their act together

  35. Well, the value is definitely here. Was hoping for a jacket for fall, however. I do like 7/8 tights as I’m short so they are full length for me. It is a colorful box, I’ll give them that. Glad the tights are a neutral dark blue.

    • From what I can guess – Sunglasses value is around $100 / Shoes $120 / Leggings $75 / Tank $28 / Bra $45. $368.

  36. better than the last box but defnitely should have included a hoodie or jacket since it’s supposed to be a fall box ..

  37. Welp, that was a monumental waste of money.

  38. I wonder if this was their original plan for a summer box before deciding to collaborate with wanderlust. The only thing I would’ve liked are the pants and you can often find adidas pants for half off (like the two on their website right now). The shoes from the summer box rub my pinky toes even though the more traditional adidas tennis shoes work well for me. Glad I cancelled after summer box, that was my first and only box. Wonder if their glory days are done since the past two boxes are nowhere near as good as their first few. No regrets (other than buying the summer box of course).

  39. I will definitely be returning this box. I at least thought the black and white adidas windbreakers would be included. OMG and those shoes are super ugly. Return return return

    • Do they allowed return of the whole box?

      • Their policy stated no returns but they let people do it in the spring

  40. This is like the summer box we should have had. I like the color and the items seem good, but it doesn’t scream fall. That said, I’m much much more excited for this than the last box.

  41. I wish there was a box like this with cross-trainers instead of running shoes. I can’t run due to an issue with my knees, but I can do all other sorts of exercise. I have learned from experience that running shoes are not appropriate for what I am doing, though.

    I would be happy with pink and purple shoes, though. Honestly, the more obnoxious, the better!

  42. This does not feel like a fall box at all. Fall is my favorite and I was excited for more of a fall workout wardrobe. This seems too summery for me. 🙁

    • Totally agree and those shoes are super ugly. No need to open the box. I will be returning this, I’m over adidas at this point.

  43. Sounds like a really low-value box, and SUNGLASSES?? Come on, Adidas, those of us who wear prescription eyeglasses get sick of finding them in our boxes because they are useless to us, and don’t most other folks already have enough sunglasses?!? Sad to say, this will be my last box.

  44. I might be the only person excited about sunglasses I am so excited for them! My sunglasses that I wear for sports and outdoor athletic activities are fairly close to broken, so this is perfect timing. I think sunglasses are a fairly year round item actually.

    • Right?! The sun shines year-round, not just in the summer, lol!

      • Unless you live in Seattle like me. haha.

        • Oh, sorry, forgot about Seattle! 🙂 beautiful part of the country you live in! I’m in central NC so plenty of sunshine here….

  45. Yay! I love pink and purple. Lol. The shoes are not ugly to me…..

    • I agree, the shoes in their first box were pink and purple and I loved them!

  46. I”m happy for some color after all the more mellow shoes colors lately. From what I can see, looks like a good value box.

  47. I looked up those shoes and they’re ugly AF. Compared to the last box where I had countless comments on the love for my shoes to this one that’s so disappointing. Sounds like they were rushed to pick items. Hopefully when I get the box tomorrow I’ll feel better when I see the stuff. But I certainly don’t want pink and purple shoes.

      • I’m an 8.5 but I don’t know if I’ll keep until I get them. I’m last on the list of people to get this box, unfortunately.

        p.s. your link didn’t work

      • Mine will be 8.5, will let you know

  48. I am SO excited that they included real running shoes this time!

  49. Yes! Super excited for my box.

  50. Glad I cancelled. I do not need pink and purple tennis shoes.
