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).


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.)


Each box has a unique print, too!

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.


The Spring Box is curated by Hannah Bronfman. 


And Hannah included Style Tips for wearing each item:


Now, onto the items!


Adidas Pureboost Running Shoes – Value $130


Adidas included these shoes in a different colorway in the first Avenue A box. They are probably my favorite Adidas shoe to date, so I was thrilled to see them in another color for this box!


And the grey-on-grey color scheme is lovely, too!


The dark grey parts of the shoe are a breathable mesh fabric to improve ventilation.


This shoe has a floating arch that molds to the shape of your foot and provides support.


I’m a size 9 in sneakers, and I found that these run true to size.


And the middle grey section is actually a subtle silver metallic.


Adidas Ultimate Long Tights – Value $90


This running tight is made with moisture-wicking climalite fabric with breathable mesh panels.


I love wearing black clothing (for workouts and just life in general) so this mesh paneling legging is a perfect way for me to stay in my color comfort zone, while still mixing things up a bit!


It has a thick waistband that stays in place well:


There’s even a little message for you inside the waistband:


And there’s a pocket for a key, too.


Adidas Micro Camo Print Bra – Value $30


I love the static print of this sports bra, and it’s another interesting take on a basic black sports bra.


This bra is made with the same climalite wicking fabric as the leggings, but it’s completely lined! It has medium support and is really comfortable, too.


Comfort Cover Up Top – Value $70


This open hoodie is made with a medium-weight french terry (95% cotton, 5% spandex), and it is my new favorite layering piece!


It’s designed to run long, so you get extra coverage!


It has pockets on both sides, and the left-hand pocket has a second pocket inside the big pocket (it fit my phone perfectly.)


Adidas by Stella McCartney Small Gym Bag – Value $135

This bag is amazing! The zipper in the bottom black portion is for storing shoes.


It has a detachable shoulder strap.


And great news about the white fabric! It’s a laser cut nylon that should hold up well to dirt (compared to a canvas finish, for example).


The Stella McCartney gunmetal silver logo plaque is front and center.


And inside the bag is lined in Stella fabric, with multiple pockets, included a protective laptop compartment!


Here is everything on:




And here is a better look at the mesh panels on the tights:


Good news for me – the mesh panels aren’t too revealing at all!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $455! WOW!! I think this is my favorite Avenue A box, yet. The value is incredible, and all items are super wearable for me (while still being unique). What do you think of the Avenue A by Adidas Spring Box?

Every Avenue A box is filled with at least 3 premium items (mix of shoes, apparel and accessories) selected by celebrity curators who exemplify style, fitness and performance. Box ships once a quarter. A New box will be released quarterly, sometime in March, June, September, and December. When ... read more.

Any updates on the summer box?


This will be my first box. I’m so excited, though I don’t work out. Lol i guess i can just look like i will. But i do love a good tennis shoe.


I would love to trade my spring 17 shoes for the Rita Ora Banned from Normal, size large hoodie and Medium leggings.


Has anyone actually received an exchange this time around? I understand that the old system was unsustainable but I sent them my defective bag and wrong size shoes weeks ago with no confirmation or response from Cust Service since… Their customer service is such a mess I’m starting to think I’m out my $$$ on the exchanges….


I submitted an exchange request for different size tights and sports bra, and received them pretty quickly. They also didn’t ask me to send anything back, so maybe that’s why they were able to process it faster.

I sent in an exchange 2/25 for the shoes, got an email 2/27 sending my return shipping label. I mailed the shoes 3/3, and they arrive to them 3/7. I got an email 3/14 telling me the received the returned shoes and processed my exchange. I never received any tracking #, just that email saying they put in an order for my new ones. They arrived 3/20.

So nearly a month later after my initial request, did I finally get the right sizes shoes.

It seems to be a process for them.


I just emailed them for the 2nd time today. I sent 2 items in for an exchange right away and after almost 2 weeks I emailed them. All the told me was that they would send an email when the exchange was processed and shipped back to me. Well, its been over a week since then and still no confirmation email or anything saying my exchange was even received. Their customer service is making me think twice about continuing with this subscription.


I am looking to sell the Pure Boost Xpose Shoes size 9, the Ultimate Long Tights size XL, and the Stella Bag. Let me know if you are interested


I have a pair of tights available in a size L if anyone is interested!


I was really excited by this product, but the customer service for Avenue A is terrible. I have been trying to exchange the shoes (even the smallest size is too large for me — they run big) this month, and they simply do not respond to customer emails more than once per day. This has taken me almost two weeks now, and I still don’t have a resolution. I’m definitely going to cancel.


I was so excited to get this box, I was checking my tracking number every day! Unfortunately it said the box was delivered on the 27th to my lock mailroom, but when I looked that afternoon (and every day since then), it is nowhere to be found! I have contacted FedEx and Adidas Avenue A without any luck from either of them so far 🙁 Super disappointing!


I’ve had almost no success tracking down Avenue A for another issue. Their customer service is terrible 🙁


I understand its frustrating they have responded yet but Avenue A Customer service isnt the ones that you need to be working with. They fufilled their part buy sending the box…it was Fedex or your mailroom that owes you refund for losing your box.

Any hints or guesses on who’s curating the summer box???

Kati Ward

This box is usually amazing, but buyer beware…. if you need to make an out of the ordinary exchange (aka, something other than a sixe exchange) there is NO way to reach them. The phone number on the email doesn’t handle Avenue A box exchanges and they do not answer their emails. So frustrating.

Kati Ward

If anyone is interested in trading the shoes from this box, I have a size 9 that do not work for my super wide feet!!


I feel like a seaworld trainer in the tights! LOL I wish they were larger…the waistband rolls down as I wear them. The jacket is a bit small too but Its to be expected as the shirts are usually too small. I think I got lucky with the ZNE white hoodie in the fall and its weird cut made it big enough for me. Still wish a 2x option would be available even if it wasnt the same item but an alternative. I have 2x Adidas clothing so I know they make them. The shoes are ok. I prefer a bit of structure in the toe box and these feel like socks around the toes. The bag is wonderful. I wonder if it can be washed when it gets dirty. Im happy with this box overall. I hope there’s fun stuff in the summer box.


There aren’t any spoilers for Summer right?

Thank you in advance


I was just wondering the same thing! Anyone have any idea when we may see the first summer spoiler?


What an amazing box. Awesome.


got it yesterday, love love love everything in it. My first box was the Rita Ora, which I loved for the 2 pairs of sneakers alone! This one, though, wow! Those sneakers are awesome, I’ve been wanting a bag with a separate shoe compartment, and all the clothing items look super useful. I’ve been curious about mesh leggings, so this is a wonderful way to dip a toe into that trend!!


hey guys I’m selling the super stars size 7 1/2 if anyone wants them from the winter box?
let me know- i don’t mind trading them for items from this box as well!


I am looking for the shoes for my sister-in-law in a 7-7.5 and I have current items listed.

Natasha Williams

I’m frustrated with shipping. Fedex shows that it was delivered on Friday…but I didn’t receive it. Anyone have a similar experience? How was it resolved? Thanks.


I’m having the same problem. Did adidas ever get back with you?

Natasha Williams

I haven’t heard back from Adidas yet, but I contacted FedEx to open a claim. I’m hopeful that it was a mistake and my box will show up soon.


Does anyone know how the exchange process works? The online Request Exchange form is asking for a 7 or 11-digit order number, but my order number is much longer than 11 digits.


You have to use the number for the order confirmation number. Use the first 11 characters.

If you use the number of the shipping confirmation it do nor woks.


I had trouble with the online Exchange Request form a while back too. I just ended up emailing them, and gave them that long number. They responded quickly and were very helpful. I used the email on the website.


I did an exchange a while back, and also had trouble with the online Request Exchange form. I ended up emailing them and got a response pretty quickly. They were really helpful. I gave them the really long number in the email. This is the email I used, hopefully it’s the same. Hope it helps, [email protected]


I’m having trouble too. I’ve tried the order # from my email and from my shipping box and it won’t let me input any of them. People had trouble last season too.


I’m selling my Stella bag. If interested let me know.


I’m selling XS tights and hoodie if anyone is interested let me know!


Is it just me or is Adidas sizing inconsistent? After the summer box I went up in size, fall box ended up being too big so I went down. Now this box is too small.


YES! The sizing is all over the place. I usually wear a small or medium in tights, and these were WAY too small! Exchanging for a size up. However, the bra, hoodie, and shoes were all true to size. I find that Adidas usually runs a little small, especially if you are tall (I’m 5’11” and usually size up for everything).


I absolutely loved this box!! Unlike the last one where almost everything was too big, most items this time fit perfectly. The only thing I wish is that the hoodie came in a different color, I feel like the burnt red is more of a fall color and would have preferred more of a spring/summer color. But can’t complain:)

Also thought it was weird that the info card said “winter 2016” when it was the spring 2017 box.


Ahh! This box is amazing!!! 🙂

However, there are a few items that I just don’t need, so letting y’all know that they are now delivered to me and AVAILABLE for YOU!

Up for SALE or SWAP:

-Sports Bra, size Large (L)
-Cover Up/Hoodie, size Extra Large (XL)
-Stella Bag

Feel free to use the link (my name above) to request a swap or Sale!


Anyone tried to exchange the shoes? I updated my fit profile to a 7 last box since the shoes were so massive – but now the size 7 in these shoes is just a little tight.

I filled out the form and went to go switch back my shoe size to 7.5 on the fit profile and it won’t save – citing that some sizes in the current box are sold out. Now i’m worried I won’t be able to get the right sizes.


I have sent the shoes back and they received them, and had been 3 days and heard nothing back, anybody hear something?


I sent mine back last friday and they arrived to them I believe Tuesday/Wednesday. I haven’t gotten anything yet to confirm a replacement.

I did an exchange with last quarter’s box and didn’t get any emails about the new shoes shipping. They just showed up a week or so later. I’m trusting them to ship me the right size. If I don’t get anything within the next week, I’ll contact them again.

Does anyone know what company this is? I’ve heard its just a subscription box company that’s licensed to sell Adidas, so it’s not actually Adidas. Knowing that could help us contact them better.


I sent back the items on the 1st and no conformation, no email back. I hope I hear something from them. ..this is a lot of money for a box. It’s so scary when they don’t get back to you.


I have 2 boxes and I got the second box because of the shoes, sadly one pair came with a snag on the fabric on top the shoe, almost a small hole. Adidas wants me to send them back before they will send out a replacement.

I just got my box yesterday and my shoes have a flaw in the upper front area side near the toes. Not a tear, but the seam is weird and has the rubber area sticking out weird. It is an obvious enough flaw that I won’t wear these shoes. I made a request to exchange yesterday, but have not received a response yet. I definitely don’t mind sending back to exchange since they aren’t something I would give to a friend. But it will be sad if I have to send back and wait for additional processing on their side to get a replacement.


Yeah they finally got back to me too and asked for me to return them. Strange since last box they let me keep the incorrect sizing and sent new ones.

Guess this is a popular box!


Was anyone else’s box missing the info card?


Mine was too.
