The tech is legit. But if its only dropping you to 11.5 your probably still better off on a mid wide (of course your stance angles will also determine this). Another thing you might be able to do is ride a half size down 11.5 making the print 11 or smaller. If you ride allot this would be the way to go. If you do, heat mold them to open them up a bit before you ride. Also understand that they will be tight and have a break in period ( about 7-10 days on snow). If you don't ride allot then it wouldn't be worth waisting an entire season just to break in some boots. Ultimately its up to you but keep in mind your boots are the number one most important piece of your set up so take your time and try on as many as possible. GL
