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:
- 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.)
- Like I stated earlier, I do not look fashionable in these glasses!
- My Fabletics jacket from a few seasons ago matched almost everything really well, no?
- 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.
