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.

 What do you think of the Avenue A by Adidas Fall 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.

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!

Krystal F

Anyone know If Avenue A has re-started? I just came across this subscription service while looking online this morning for fitness subscription. However, by reading these comments, it looks like its stopped Fall of 2017. I cant find a website either. Thanks!

Megan

It hasn’t come back and I’m beginning to think it may not. 🙁 I actually loved this sub!

Anna

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

Donna

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

Tricia

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.

Tricia

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”

Jennifer

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?

Alecia

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

Tania

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

Wendy

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.

Tricia

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

Trisha

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!

Trisha

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.

Tracy S

Really wish Avenue A Adidas shipped to Canada.

Sierra

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!

Joyce

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?

Joni

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 🙂

Joyce

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

Tania

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….

Janet

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

Janet

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…

Victoria

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.

Janet

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!

Veronica

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.

Susan

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.

Tj

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

Veronica

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

Celia

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

Trisha

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.

Trisha

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.

Janet

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.

nika

Same here …

Susan

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.

Beckie

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.

Gloria

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!

trace

Been wanting to try this box. This one looks kind of mismatch for a Fall Box. No sweatshirt or hoodie? Maybe winter will be better.

trace

I take that back. I guess if you have been subbed from the beginning, these pieces will match other collections. Have to wait for a good starting point for me.

Jenny

I loved this box too. I wore the tank today to weight lift and it is super cute and comfortable. Jewel tones are my favorite, so everything in this box is an awesome color. It’s too hot to try the leggings out yet, but I love the details of the mesh and the drawstring. I got purple sunglasses, which are just fine (and match my tank) although I admit I’m a little jealous of the pink ones.

Jessica

I actually wish I had gotten this box. I like the pieces. With that said, if anybody is truly unhappy with their shoes and they have a size 10, I would love them. I am on the swap site and I have the white lifestyle shoes from the rita box up for swap, but I also have the coral color jacket piece from the spring box (medium) but I have yet to put it up on the site.

Nyla

I’ll trade you I do not like pink. Let me know to to get in touch

Jenn

I don’t have the shoes to swap (mine are size 8), but I have all other items in size M, and my sunglasses are these: https://www.adidassporteyewear.com/de-de/sprung-BLUE-SHINY-LST

If you want to swap anything with the jacket, I would be willing to do that, but I am not on the swap site, I’m still on the waiting list :/

If you want to swap anything, my contact is jennifernandes8 at g mail dot com.

Jessica

thanks so much for the offer. i do like your sunglasses. I’m hoping to score the shoes though (I have a bad addiction for sneakers). I thought I had a swap, but she was a new swapper and did not want to send out her shoes to me first – I get it – it’s a high dollar item – so sad… Perhaps if nothing else the shoes will show up at a reasonable price elsewhere. I’m not worried about if they are considered last season when/if I get them. Have a great day…

mrs_morgan0515

I would actually trade with you. I like plain shoes and probably won’t wear these purple ones. Size 10 – I haven’t even tried them on. I haven’t swapped before but I have access, let me figure out how to list mine.

Katie

I think that the pieces are great stand alone pieces but the curation of all of them together is terrible. I know a lot of these pieces have great reviews online, but it feels they put the least popular colors in this box.
The bra doesn’t work with the tank, I feel the bra is more of a stand alone piece or you wear it as someone previously stated, under a sheer tee.

Victoria

I don’t believe they are meant to be worn together. This box had two curators instead of one. If you look at the card inserted, it shows a photo of the one girl wearing the bra as a top by itself and the other girl wearing the tank (with a different style of bra beneath it.)

Sam

I actually like the pants and I’m not super fit(Liz, you look great!). This was my first box and I was disappointed overall. Nothing goes together and the sunglasses (I got green, ugh) are awful and considering the reviews I’d read of previous boxes, I wasn’t expecting green, plastic, poorly shaped shades to take up so much of the value in the box. If winter isn’t better I’m done.

Veronica

I got my box today. I’m so disappointed. I don’t like one single item. I loved the summer box. I wanted to like something about this box, but it’s just not my style. I wish they would let you return the box.

sin

totally agree! i can’t get over the colour

Neonsaylor

I loved the summer box too (although it did feel like something was missing), and I don’t care much for this box either. It’s definitely summer wear where I live & I feel like the glasses were a last minute throw in. Also, why have curators when the box doesn’t seem to match?!
I’ve really been on the fence with this box. Seems they are going downhill. Ya, value was there but nothing really exciting. This could be an amazing box. I wish they would put their hearts into it.

Frances Tran

I do not like this box. All the color does not go good together and it is not a complete look but I like the shoes. The bra did not fit right to me it has a big opening by my underarm. Kinda disappointed ! I am expected some kind of light jacket to go with since it a fall box. I hope they will do better for the next box.

Laura Diniwilk

I’m gonna post my sunnies to trade for a more “me” color – mine are bright green with silver mirrored frames. Maybe someone has the gray/pink/teal/pretty much any other color and it’s not for them? diniwilks at gmail if this catches someone’s eye before I can post it on Monday.

Jenn Abbott

I have the maroon wildcharge sunglasses if you still have your greens ones. green is more my color. what style are the green ones.

Laura

The maroon and the clear wildcharge with purple frames are the two I was hoping for! The green are the excalate. I listed it for swap or you can just email me.

Rachel

I want the pink shoes she’s wearing in the card. Would LOVE those!:)

Joni

Yes!!!!!

Seriously WANT those lighter pink shoes that she’s wearing in the box insert (they look comfortable, not “too” colorful for the neutral-loving people and on trend/ super stylish!)

I am okay with what we received, bUT would’ve LOVED GETTING THOSE!

Tania

Me too!

Janet

I just want mine to ship… mailing AA got me a tracking number but it doesn’t show up at FedEx. They did update my profile to show the next box arrival date in November instead of yesterday…

Tania

The winter box ships in November! I would email the customer service asap to get the fall box or the $ back!

Janet

They said my fall box would ship “soon” but that’s pretty vague….

sher_w

I feel badly for the people who don’t like this box. But I just tried everything on , and I LOVE both purple and blue, so I am a happy camper. I wasn’t super pleased about my pink sunglasses, but I just swapped them, so life is good 🙂 This isn’t to say I will love the next box (especially if the main colours are yellow and orange, NOT my favourites), given that these boxes are mostly a gamble, but for now I say: Good job, Adidas!

Joni

Did you see a spoiler of yellow & orange color theme somewhere? (Hoping not… orange is Def not my best color) 😉
