Thank you both for the feedback, I hope to show off some photos in the dead of the Texas summer.
Sounds like I should stick with Neil’s suggestion and go with the 12, I hate boots that are too snug.

Recommend going with size 12 & adding an insole for comfort if slightly too big.

Broark,

I've had the Badalassi boots in 11 as well just about everything else imaginable except Iv'e not tried the Viberg 2045, but hope to. I think your Tru Balance size is a safe bet, if you don't have narrow feet. I'm an 11EE. The size 11 Lofgren were great and felt right in size 11 but the last didn't. I don't know if a little tweak has been made since my pair was made a couple years ago, but they were build at a bit of a slant like modern Chippewa engineers, and Attractions engineers which made my foot slide forward while standing and walking cramming my toes in the toe box and leaving space in the heel. Couldn't fix it with the ankle strap and wasn't going down to a 10.5 so I sold them. Just my story, but I found my pair to be equal to an Alden Tru Balance sizing

So after thinking about it a lot I just put in a preorder for the boots in size 12.
I wore my Alden Indy boots recently for the first time in awhile and the 11.5 are actually a lot more narrow than I recalled, so I opted for more room. I think I'll be able to get away with an insole if they are a little big. Thanks for the feedback everyone.
And now we wait!
