Weird sizing, very narrow

I wanted to love these shoes. I definitely like the concept and the way they looked. The insole being very loosely attached to the shoe was the only problem upon first inspection (this has been the case with every pair I've looked at as well). The size on these shoes is very problematic. I normally wear 10.5 or 11. ne of my feet is slightly larger than the other, but this rarely causes a problem, and I easily wear a 10.5-11 all the time. These shoes I went with the 11 first, as they are supposed to be a little narrow. The 11's were completely unbearable, and by toe knuckles bulged out of the shoe. I then went with an 11.5, and one foot was good, the other was still painfully too narrow. Backcountry no longer has anything over an 11.5, and a local sporting good store has a pair of 12's I'm going to try, but I don't think that will work, as one may fit, but the other may be too large. I tried a pair of North Face Padda's that fit fine in an 11, no problem, but I really liked the idea of the Techamphib, and am bummed at the weird sizing. Backcountry was very cool throughout this, and made return shipping and trying another pair very easy. I love this company and will recommend it to anyone.
