Just about everyone is gonna tell you that buying boots online is a huge gamble... you really never know what a companies sizing is. However, if you're planning on buying another pair of Ride boots then the sizing should be the same and you shouldn't have a problem... but in some cases the companies actually don't have consistent sizing so even then you can't he sure.
Bottom line, buying boots online is a big risk and It's so much better to just take the extra time and go try them on. It's better to do that than end up ordering boots that are too small or too big and it would definitely be bad to just use them anyways because you don't want to take the time to exchange them, its really important for boots to fit right, it could lead to some pretty serious injuries with your ankles.

Ride boots are super small. I ride a 7.5 Burton a 7 in Thirtytwo and an 8-8.5 Ride. I sell Ride boots too and they are really short, but the toe box really molds and packs nicely. Buying them really snug is a good idea with the Intuition liner. But that's my preference. I love Ride boots, but they definitely run smaller than most brands.
So, you're probably a 10.5 or 11 in a Ride boot even if you ride a size smaller in other brands.

|Liquidnails||I wear a size 11-11.5 street shoe, Salomon abd Burton boots fit me perfect @ sz 10.5, and DC boots fit me at 11.5. Salomon boots definitely seem to be narrower, too.|

|HoboMaster||Meh, sizing is all messed up nowadays. Street shoes I wear anything between a 9.5-10.5. Shirts seems to fit me pretty universally, pants however can vary greatly, some 32's are loose as hell, some are snug.|

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

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.
The boot shouldn't be super comfortable out of the box. They need to fit snugly at first because after you break them in, they will loosen up and the liner will form to your feet shape.
Do you have heel lift in your current boot? Heel lift is bad... very bad.
You actually can order boots online. Just get ready to return them a few times (shipping costs if no return sticker is provided).
