Ever Think About **FREE** Athletic Shoes and Testing?

Hello and welcome to my blog! To receive these deals daily, sign up for my **FREE** e-mail newsletter or subscribe to my automatic RSS feed. If you'd like a printable copy of this post, please see the link below. Thank you for stopping by!

Did you know that three of the biggest athletic shoe manufacturers have testing programs?

Yep, they do!  You can apply with each manufacturer/company to be accepted as one of their testers.  Each company has specific rules and guidelines, but all will give you **FREE** shoes either to keep for a few months at a time.

Here is the information on each one:

Nike - "Testing is the essence of Nike, the assurance to our athletes and our consumers that Nike product innovation is equal to, and often exceeds their expectations, whether they compete at the highest levels or in their local recreational league.

Nike Footwear ProductTesting is seeking a broad variety of athletes, dedicated both to their sport and to providing constructive and candid feedback on the shoes they test. If you are serious about your sport, and your shoes, and you think you have what it takes to be a member of our testing program, then apply today."

 Kids AND adults welcome to apply.

New Balance - Do you wish your new shoes or apparel fit perfectly - every time?  Do you wish you had some say in how a product was designed or how it performed?  Don't just wish, take action.  By participating in the Wear Test program, you can help New Balance and its family of brands make its products fit, look and perform better.  Pick the brand you want to test (NB, PF Flyer, Dunham, Aravon, Warrior or Brine), then if you are selected as a tester, all you have to do is:
  1. Wear prototype products.
  2. Test these products based on comfort, durability, performance, and looks.
  3. Improve our products by letting us know what you think.
Requirements are few and rewards are great, so please learn more about the program and our expectations, see if you qualify, and sign up to become a tester.

(This company's sign-up is relatively long and detailed.  I finally canceled out of it.  Maybe another night...)

Brooks - Brooks conducts continuous research on runners’ biomechanics (the way you move), and the effects of running footwear on biomechanics, performance, and comfort. Our studies, conducted at our Bothell, WA headquarters, examine the effectiveness of current Brooks product in meeting runners’ needs—as compared with competitors’ products and in an effort to pioneer new technologies that enhance running efficacy and performance. The data we collect from runners in the lab directly informs the development of Brooks products.  The duration of testing ranges from one to two hours, one to four times a year. Ticker
