Default Width Help

I just bought a pair of Deeluxe ID size 11 boots. Tried them on in the store and fit great, found a better deal online so they'll get here Wednesday.

I don't currently own a board, looking to purchase my first and looking at widths, I'm right in the middle between wide and regular it seems. Getting a lot mixed recommendations from websites so hoping for some better advice here.
I'm 6'4 and 190lbs and looking for an all-mountain directional board. I measured my foot barefoot and its right on 11in or 28cm. Not exactly sure how much the Deeluxe shoes will add, but they do not have size reduction and heard they are true to size.

While it depends some on your stance angles and stance width I wouldn't ride anything under 250mm/25in personally. I've ridden 246mm and 250mm boards with somewhat of a wide stance(size 11 boot with no reduced footprint) and got away with it but there were a couple close calls.

I wear an 11 boot and I've been fine on everything down to a 253. Never ridden narrower than that.

My stance angle is more \ | ,definitely not duck. Thanks for the help so far. I thought I'd need over 260, like 265 but that seems a little much. I read this is one of the better guides Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator and it shows 253 for me but that seems really low. I think 258 would be ideal.

Also, I found a great deal on Union Force bindings. Size 11 boots would be L/XL correct? and not M/L? From their sizing it could go both ways.

Would a 269mm waist be too wide for a size 11 boot? All-mountain/freeride board.

For reference my stance is +12, -9 on the 253

255+ and you'll definitely be fine

Yes L/XL. An 11 doesn't quite fit in a M/L Union.
