Did you know almost all the major shoe brands have product testing panels where you can get FREE shoes and FREE clothing to test? Just apply and let them know a little about the activities you participate in and they may just choose you as a wear tester.
Some companies require you be at least 18, while others allow children and babies to test as well. Sometimes, after your test they will ask you to send the clothing or shoes back so they can analyze how they held up (they always pay for return shipping). Many times they will give you the final product for FREE as a thank you for testing.
