How To Become a Clothing & Sneaker Product Tester & Get Free Stuff

If you’re interested in trying out clothing or shoes for free from athletic brands, then look no further. There are several product testing opportunities that you might be interested in. Product testing helps businesses to collect user feedback about their products or services before it is released. For this purpose, some companies may gift the clothing and shoe products free of charge for an authentic review. That is one of major perks, as you will be one of the first to know about an item before it is released. Many companies consider the clothing and shoes as a payment, while others may also offer a monetary compensation.

FN compiled a list of brands that have clothing and shoe product testing programs and the steps interested applicants should take when applying. Check out our list below.
