Size 11 boot from a street 9.5? That sounds really wrong. I'm a 9.5 street, and my current boot is 10.
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.
