For about 10 months now, I’ve been a weartester for New Balance.
It’s been a really cool experience and I cannot thank New Balance enough for the opportunity. It is a pretty simple process to become a weartester. All you have to do is fill out the registration for on: weartest.newbalance.com. After that if they select you, you’ll receive a pair of shoes to try out for a month. After a month, you send the shoes back and fill out a review of the shoes.
So far, I’ve done 2 tests for them.
The first test was on a pair of cross trainers – MX577v4.
These shoes were really great for HIT classes, plyometric exercise, light jogging, and light weight lifting.
The second test was on a pair of shoes for causal use. They were the UK 577.
I really liked these shoes and color way and I might break down and get a pair when they release.
I hope that I can do more weartests for them. I’ve applied for other brands, but they have not selected me to do any tests.
