Comments about New Balance 496 (Men's):

I have been ordering this same shoe for 35-40 years,
probably 20 -25 pairs. The last couple of pair seemed
tight, not the 4E that I would like to get.

    Comments about New Balance 496 (Men's):

    I have been buying these "sneakers" for about 15 years. Unlike other shoes which are around when you buy them then gone next time you need them, these guys continue to be available, but only on line. I wear them 98% of the time! summer or winter unless I'm getting dressed up or it's actively snowing. I always have three pairs going, one for best, one for second best and the oldest for yard work or grainy sand beach walking. I just bought two pairs for the closet. Never know when they might be discontinued. Call me crazy but buying shoes is a traumatic experience for me and I know these fit and are comfortable. I found a good thing and I'm sticking with it!

          This shoe is my everyday foot wear. It is comfortable and stable for walking and fits inside my winter NEOS boots.

              These shoes do not seem true to size, feel they are cut larger than sizing.

                      I have been a Mason customer for over 20 years. This was the worst service I have ever had. I understood that my shoes were backordered to the beginning of November, but I didn't receive them until today. Fedex ALWAYS leaves packages at the door when we aren't home, but apparently you provide specific instructions not to do that. As a result, they delivered my shoes to the post office. But my post office is only open Mon-Fri 9 to 4. That means working people have to get someone else to pick up their packages. It would have been so much simpler to let the package be delivered as usual. I am really unhappy with the entire process. There are not enough choices in the bottom line, but I will probably NOT recommend Mason to anyone who lives in my home town.
