Started rock climbing recently and was interested in the Evolv Bandit, presently on sale. The rental shoes I use are 11 and feel snug, but not tight. My regular shoes are either 9 Wide or 9 1/2. Could you advise me on what size to order in the Bandit (since they are mail order)?
Would you advise another model shoe for a beginning rock climber?

1: I would buy a half size or maybe a full size since your feet are wide.
2: This is a perfect beginner shoe. This was the first shoe I had ever bought.
