I'm ordering them through Alden of Carmel and there very helpful but he hasn't been able to give me advice when comparing to sneakers.
i suggest you get your aldens a half-size smaller if they are made on the barrie last (which they are if they are boots). funny, in nike, i wear a 9.5 also, but in alden's, i wear a 8.5. i have a suggestion, trace an outline of your foot and send it in to alden of carmel. they should be able to figure out the proper fit for you based on your outline.
