Avenue A by Adidas *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

This looks awesome! Thanks for posting @@s112095! I so wish I could get this. I have too many boxes right now to add more especially at this price range but I think this will be a great value. Can't wait to see what you all get in it!

I subscribed too and look forward to the first box.  The subscription seems flexible with the opt out/in option.

I really like the ability to pause the sub and exchange things that don't fit right. 

I asked my friend to talk me out of it, instead we're both subbed now.  <_<

I sent it to my sister, she's a runner, she signed up right away.

 

I'm on the fence, I love the idea, the sizes look like they'll work for me but I'm wondering if it'll be heavily runner focused.  I can't run due to stupid plantar fasciitis that I've had in both feet/heels since October.

 

I love athletic focused subs, but I always tend to wear black to the gym. Ha.

At first I was like "no way am I going to spend $150 on this box."  But I started looking into it more and started to consider it when I saw the sizes are customized and we're getting a $120 pair of shoes in the first box.  I really need some new exercise shoes anyway, plus the Stella McCartney spoiler pushed me over the edge.  

I couldn't find anything Stella McCartney/Adidas for less than about $80 and I really like her designs.  Now. . to wait for March.

I signed up too, but I certainly don't need more shoes.  I have a weakness for sneakers!  I'm also pregnant, so I won't be using these for a while!  I went to the adidas website and it looks like Stella McCartney designs a baseball-style running hat that runs $30.  I wouldn't be surprised if that's the item in the box, though I hope it's something more exciting!

I also think the Stella item would be something not size specific because the subscription goes to size XL but the Stella line only goes to size L.

Also on the Nicole Winhoffer IG she says something in one of her photos  "subscribe to #adidasAvenueA and rock this hand picked apparel and shoes by me"

 

I'm wondering if she means the outfit she's wearing in the picture or just generally?

I have no willpower, I did justify signing up by telling myself I haven't bought a good pair of running shoes since I did my half marathon last year. I didn't see the second spoiler though

I've recently lost my desire to run and have become a studio addict instead, but I'm tempted to order this. Maybe it will reignite my running passion? Its a little pricey, but I don't have any adidas items, it'd be a good way to try them out....right? 

 

Does anyone know how long we have to subscribe?

I think she means generally.  She posted another pic saying essentially the same thing.

I'm really excited for this box, and I decided to sub after watching her video featuring the shoes that will be included. I currently run in Nike Free Flyknit running shoes and they have a very similar fit to the shoes that are going to be included in this box. I also love everything that Stella McCartney makes, I'm super excited at the prospect of receiving something from her line. 

 

March is going to be sub box heaven with Adidas, Rachel Zoe & PSMH Resort LE. YAY!!! Fitness, fashion and fun. :D

And the really nice thing about these 3 is that they will ship at different times (March 1, 15th & 24th) so that the joy will be spread out throughout the month.

Though PopSugar is on my s&@! list, so I don't think I'm buying any more of their boxes for a long time.

I have no will power. This is how long I lasted and I just subbed. This sub just sounds so interesting. This is really out of my price range. I don't typically go over $100 for a box and even $100 is a huge stretch for me but I want to try this so bad. The Stella McCartney is what got me. I wouldn't go out and buy Stella McCartney so I'm dying to see what's in the box.

I'm in for this one. Kind of glad it ships at the end of the month, as I have been whittling down my subscriptions and one of my last remaining ones is Rachel Zoe and that ships early, so I won't get both my big packages the same week!

 

Anyway, I need a kick in the butt to get back to running too, and I was planning on buying new shoes anyhow, so really pretty much everything else in the box is going to be a bonus. I went to my local running store to try on the shoes (albeit in a different color) and I do like them. I haven't run in anything like them before - the all mesh will be new to me. I had read some mixed advice over at MSA about what size to pick for these shoes and I'm glad I tried them on. I wear a 7.5 in most shoes... Occasionally an 8, and an 8.5 in most running shoes. The 8.5 in these shoes fit me best. I'm hoping that they spoil it if they choose to put shoes in any future box (like if they send flip flops or something) because I'd want to change my size info!

 

I am hoping that they'll always spoil the big item (I'm a huge fan of the way Rachel Zoe does that) so that we know whether to skip each quarter. I'm assuming they will as they did it that way this time. I'm super excited to see what they send! I think this would fill a hole in the sub market for me. I work out quite a bit, but I am not really into supplements like some fitness boxes send, and I liked the Mizzfit boxes okay, I would potentially sub again to that on a case by case basis, but I don't have a gym membership so when she sends things like gloves, it's not a great fit for me, so the value hasn't quite been there for me with that box. But I can always use things like shoes, workout tops, sports bras, socks, etc, and Adidas has cute stuff, so I have high hopes for this!

Oh no. I'm a 7.5 (and pretty consistently always a 7.5).  Guess will see how it goes.

I'm between 7.5 and 8 and chose 8. I hope it will work but I'm a bit worried now

I just got a billing notice for this that said the box will be shipping soon. Getting so excited!!! This box is out of my comfort zone price wise so I'm really hoping it's going to be worth it. Excited and worried at the same time. I guess that's the thrill and fun of sub boxes.  :lol:

Reija, sorry I don't know how to copy what you had written before so it's in a pretty box and I can comment on it, but in regards to being worried about the size you ordered, Avenue A's website says you can exchange the product for a different size if what you received doesn't fit. Hope that helps relieve some anxiety! I don't know why but I'm really excited for this box. Hope it's great!

I'm really excited as well!  I got my billing notice today and ouch. .  $150 is a big expense for me.  But I really don't even have a pair of gym shoes and I like the ones coming in the box.  So it's like I'm buying a pair of shoes and for a few dollars more, getting some other high end gear.  

I was looking at their latest shoes and workout gear, they really have some cute designs.  Plus I've been seeing Adidas being worn more often, so I think this brand is coming back on trend.
