Adidas Avenue A – Winter 2016

…featuring the Rita Ora collection!  Think really bold prints.  REALLY BOLD.  The Winter collection was also rather special because they included two pairs of shoes (usually, we only get one): a running shoe and a lifestyle shoe.

First–can we start with how pretty the lining box is for this season?  I was in love with Fall’s box but Winter’s really hits it out of the ballpark. (I’m using mine as a drawer insert to help organize clothes)

The running shoe is a gray pair of AlphaBounce sneakers.  They’re really comfortable–I was a bit worried about the chunkiness of the sole but I like them!

And the lifestyle shoe is a really classic Adidas model: the Superstar.  Dang, these things have been around since 1969?  I’ve never owned a pair of Superstars myself–my favorite part of these are the gold logo tags.

And on to the clothing!  There were two Rita Ora collection pieces in this box: a Sweatshirt and tights.  Both of them feature her ‘Banned from Normal’ slogan.

Here’s the sweatshirt–when I say bold I mean BOLD!

This is personally, way too busy for me to wear out and about but I’m still of a fan!  I like the overall color scheme and I’m digging that Tiger trefoil on the back.  The slouchy, loose fit looks really comfortable.  Poshmark it is!

The tights are less funky and more wearable, I think–These will look great with the other included top (coming up) and either one of the shoes!  That’s the best part about Avenue A, in my opinion.  Lots of outfits, yeah!

The last piece is a 2 in 1 Top from the Fall/Winter 2017 collection.  I love love love that it’s a layerable top that actually comes apart easily!   This top has a gray tank underneath a white t-shirt that has a keyhole in the back.  I use a lot of my running clothes for yoga as well so this is a great tank/shirt piece for both activities.

And that’s everything!  I’m still a huge huge huge fan of Avenue A–I totally recommend this box if you’re into activewear!  🙂
