This box comes with card detailing the items included:

Now, onto the items!

 

Adizero Tempo 9 – Value $120

These shoes are AMAZING! I got to break them in on a walk with Eric and Buckles last night, and they were comfortable and light from the first step!

They have a snug but comfortable fit, and the cushioning is perfection! I didn’t want to take them off!

The only thing I didn’t like about these is the sole color – the beige color looked instantly dirty to me. (But they will get dirty pretty soon, so no big deal there.)

Adidas Sunglasses – Value $99

(Subscribers will receive one pair of a variety of different sunglass options.)

These sunglasses are made with plastic frames and mirrored lenses.

The fit is snug, and the nose and ear pieces are rubberized for a non-slip fit.

These aren’t the type of sunglasses I would wear for fashion reasons, but for staying place on a run – they are ideal.

Performer Strappy Tank – Value $28

This is a loose-fitting tank made with super light climalite fabric. I love the feel of this moisture-wicking material!

The cut scoops low, so this is the type of top where your sports bra will show.

Speaking of sport bras…

Halter Bra – Value $45

This is a serious sport bra! It has a high neck cut, with a supportive cross strap back, and a thick band.

It’s lined with thin (non-removable) cups, and there are mesh details on the back.

This bra is perfect for lots of support/high-impact activities. So glad to see a bra like this included in the box!

Supernova 7/8 Tight – Value $75

These dark navy tights are made with a medium compression climacool fabric.

They have a drawstring, plus inner zipper pocket:

And zippers at the ankles, too:

And there are subtle mesh panels at the backs of the knees:

Here is everything on:

A few thoughts:

  1. I would not actually wear everything together – I’m not digging the cut of the bra with this tank. (Not wild about the two colors together, either.)
  2. Like I stated earlier, I do not look fashionable in these glasses!
  3. My Fabletics jacket from a few seasons ago matched almost everything really well, no?
  4. Word of caution – these leggings show every bump/lump/etc. (I really did not like taking this picture!)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $367. I think that’s amazing for a $150 box. The sneakers are my favorite item by far. After wearing them, I’d be willing to pay $120 for another pair, so that means the rest of the box just needs to cover the $30 cost for me – no problem there!

That said, I would have liked to see something that feels a little more special or Fall in this box. (I’ve been spoiled by Stella McCartney bags!) I know not everyone lives in the same climate, but in PA, I would have loved a long-sleeved top instead of a tank, too.

  1. Just got an email from avenue..

    We are thrilled you are interested in the Avenue a winter box! As 2017 comes to an end, Avenue A will be taking a break to focus on refreshing our subscription service based on your feedback, and to better serve your needs. There will not be a Winter 2017 box, but you will be the first to know when Avenue a continues in 2018!

  2. About a month away until we’re charged for the next box, but there hasn’t been a spoiler?

    • Omg I’ve been checking for spoilers and nada! I guess the survey was a waste of time! Sad…

    • Yes I checked too and nothing!! Where are the spoilers for the Winter Box???

    • I emailed customer service yesterday to ask when the spoiler would be released…no response. My account still says billing date of 11/1/17.

      • I have signed in and out of my account multiple times and the date keeps flip-flopping from the 11/1/2017 date back to the August dates……not sure what’s going on. Today it has the August dates. A couple days ago it was the November date. Website has nothing new advertised either. I wonder if anyone has been able to reserve a subscription recently?

        • Received an email that they are “taking a break” and we will have to re sign up when they resume service in 2018.

          • Thanks, I haven’t gotten the email yet but I really hope they come back. I don’t understand people’s outright hatred for a mystery subscription box. You willingly sign up for the chance to not like the items curated so how can they be so angry??

      • I received this response from Customer Service on 10/11/17 when I asked them about the spoiler:

        “Thank you for being an Avenue a subscriber! We are thrilled you are interested in the upcoming box! We are awaiting final confirmation on the next box and will let you know as soon as possible.

        Regards,

        Avenue a customer support”

    • Just got an email they are “taking a break” until 2018, we will have to re sign up when they resume.

  3. Does anyone know what is the status of this sub box? I logged into my account and the next charge date has not been updated when the next charge is about 6 weeks away. Also, no curator or spoiler item had been announced.

    • Mine had been updated with the new charge date (I believe it was sometime in October… but I don’t remember 100%)… but when I logged in today, it’s showing me the old, August charge date. Weird!

      • Oh, I just got an email from Avenue A asking for me to participate in a survey. I did it. Wondering if they’re looking into changing up the box.

        • I got that survey as well and completed it.

    • My account says billing date 11/1/7. But it also says Box Delivery Date 11/1/17.

  4. Really wish Avenue A Adidas shipped to Canada.

  5. I loved this box! I returned the entire summer box because I didn’t think it was worth it but this month those leggings are so high quality (I got the purplish maroon color) and the tank and sports bra was perf.. had to exchange the shoes though but hopefully the size the send me will fit but I’m so happy with this seasons box, cant wait for winter!

  6. Just found out about this service and too late to get one. Anybody just hate it and have one in an XL with 9 1/2 shoe that they would want to sell?

    • Hi Joyce,

      I have the navy running tights in XL. Let me know if you are interested. I have them listed in swaps, but would sell also. The link to my swap page is my name 🙂

      • Thanks but I was looking for a complete set of everything. Thanks though

        • Are you still looking for a complete set? My shoes are 9.5. My tights are a large though.

  7. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to send exchanged items? I just got an email from Adidas saying they would ship it ‘right away’, and I’m wondering how ‘right away’ it really is….

    • I just got my shoes today. I sent the pair in to them for exchange on the 28th.

  8. Has anyone had trouble with the exchange form? I can get it to verify my order number but it won’t actually let me specify items… I keep clicking on the add an item link and nothing happens…

  9. My pants were too large. I contacted avenue a about an exchange and they said they will ship me the new size I need and just to keep the other pair to give to a friend. Excellent customer service on my first adidas box.

  10. Well.. I finally got my box and they sent me shoes a half size smaller than in my profile… I’m guessing that’s why they waited the extra week to send it? Very frustrating. Now since I can only exchange once I need to decide if I want to risk the half size difference or go up a full size (since I usually go with a larger size in running shoes). Argh!

  11. I contacted Avenue A and I’m returning the whole box. I didn’t even try one thing on.I told them I wasn’t happy with it. They sent me a FedEx Shipping label to return it.

    • Same. I’m happy with how they responded. I normally love this box.

      • How long did it take for you to hear back I’ve messaged them twice and haven’t recieved a reply

        • It took a few days actually, then I got response along with a return label. I shipped it back this morning. I’m going to wait til the winter box, but I’m pretty sure I’m canceling. It seems to be very outlet store now.

      • Me too. I loved the summer box. I’m not going to cancel this box just wasn’t for me.

    • That’s great that they let you do that. I can’t help but think they have given up on this box. They no longer put as much care or effort into the curation and allow returns. That’s not exactly a winning sub box model. I won’t be surprised to hear that they cancel the box next.

  12. Is it just me or are the curators wearing the outfits in the picture where they’re walking down the stairs? It seems like the girl on the left has the flow-y tank top, but in white. And the girl on the right is wearing the high neck sports bra, just in white. Anyway, just an observation I noticed. I LOVED this box. I could see why some women would not be comfortable with the open back of the tank top, but I love it! I’ve had my eyes on similar ones for months, just never bought one.

    • Meant to also say that maybe the curators picked everything in a more cohesive color, but Adidas didn’t have enough stock in those colors for everyone who subscribed. Or they were trying to switch up the colors because everyone’s complaints in the past about everything being white/black.

  13. Is anyone else still waiting for their box to ship? I e-mailed them Friday and they sent me a tracking number but it still isn’t showing up on FedEx. This is very stressful… all my other boxes showed up the day they were supposed to. I’d ask for a refund but I want the shoes… I e-mailed them again today.

    • They must be swamped because I initiated an exchange last Friday and still haven’t received confirmation and instructions on how to return the items. Mine sat for about five days between label being made and actual shipping.

    • Same here …

  14. First Adidas box in 2 years now that I have been thoroughly disappointed with. I hated EVERYTHING in it. Nothing matched AT ALL – I mean a blue and yellow sports bra with purple shoes, a purple tank and navy pants…..huh??? It feels like this was a box comprised from a warehouse clearance sale. With curated boxes I expect to see some semblance of a theme or at the very least and items that somewhat match. Now we all know why they weren’t releasing any spoilers.

    • I just wear this combo today for a long day of travelling from east to west coast.

      1) sport bra and tights from this box
      2) mesh white shirt from Rita Ora’d box (without the grey shirt)
      3) pureboost sneaker from Spring’17 box

      Super comfy and it looks cute as well.

      The sneakers from this box also look well with the black tights from
      Spring box and the mesh white shirt.

      I also love the tights from this box with the Summer white shirt.

      *hope you find your way around the box… Im still looking for a way to work the shirt included in this box.

      Also, Avenue A team if you are reafing this… Im dying for a cap to be incuded!
