If your job is physically demanding, or you find yourself outdoors, on your feet all day at work, in all weather, you need a pair of shoes you can rely on. And that’s precisely what the Georgia Boot Company aims to provide.

The retailer’s been making quality boots and more footwear ever since the brand was founded in 1937, and the reason they’re able to deliver such reliable shoes is because they’ve got real people, like you, helping them test their products. And if you’re interested in trying out the latest products from Georgia Boot, you can apply to be a product tester to give their shoes a test run on your job site.

You’ll report back to the company about what worked and didn’t work about the shoe design, and as a thank you, you might even receive a free pair of shoes for your effort.


All you have to do to apply is fill out a brief online questionnaire. To be eligible for consideration, you must meet a list of requirements. For starters, you must be at least 18 years or older and have a career as an ironworker, landscaper, painter, roofer or paver. You can see the full list of requirements on the Georgia Boot website.

If you meet the minimum requirements and you’re selected as one of the product testers, you’ll just need to complete an online questionnaire before and after the trial period and wear the shoes for the duration of the testing period, which typically lasts three to five weeks.

The results you provide will help Georgia Boot create the best product possible, one that’s well-suited for the work environments they’ve listed, because it’s jobs such as these where comfort and durability really count. And Georgia Boot gets it.

Reviews on their top-selling boots prove that this product testing phase really does work, ultimately creating products people love to wear.

This FLXpoint composite toe waterproof work boot has received high marks for comfort and long-lasting durability. It’s available for $190 on the Georgia Boot website.

“I work in an industrial environment … This is the third pair of these boots I have purchased … they are long wearing and great on concrete … they last me 18 to 24 months,” one review reads on the product page.

The women’s Giant steel toe work boot has also rave reviews. “This is my second pair, and I have decided that I will be a lifelong customer! This boot is incredibly comfortable, and I can wear it all day without any issue. There wasn’t even a break-in period, which was wonderful. I would highly recommend this boot,” one review reads.

The boot is available for $138 online:
