It sounds like you have the wrong idea about boot fitment and comfort.
Seriously, it concerned me when I bought them. I actually stared at the salescritter and said "that CANNOT be right". But my big toe just touches the end when I first put them on. It's possible that a 10.5 would work if the liner expanded a bit, but definitely nothing less.

I should ask, though -- is a US size 11 the same as a Canadian size 11? The Rides specifically say US 11, and of course all the shoes I buy locally are in Canadian size.

I think the central point here though is that the stated boot size is only good for a ranging shot.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
