When these combine, the pair fits my standard 9D feet well. Pic for proof that this happened, if need be.
Look, I'm not trying to be an ass & I'm definitely not trying to "thread shit". BUT, we've got to be honest here. an 11 is nearly 3/4 of an inch longer than a 9 (2 sizes different is always around 3/4 of an inch). Regardless of width, to say a foot with a size 9 length can comfortably fit a size 11 shoe is crazy... unless the particular model of shoe is sized like that throughout.
All this "buy a shoe way too long for you & it's OK as long as the width is good" is plain bad advice. Badly fitting shoes will do serious damage to your feet, regardless of their maker or retail price.
HOWEVER, I'm not gonna argue this point, as it's prety moot. That said, if some of those shoes were just a half size smaller, I'd be trying to buy them up. This is still a great post with great shoes being sold.
SNATCH THEM UP... IF THEY FIT.
