Me loved them.
Recently bought a new pair, and of course you can't ever buy the same damn running shoe model twice in a row so I got Kinvara 2s .....also size 11.
They were a snug fit. Sigh. The hazards of internet buying. I should have returned them, but at the time I told myself that they would loosen up.
That might work a bit for toe-box width but not for length. Yes, the toe-box was narrow but heck, my big toe was right at the end of the shoe. I ran in them for a while and finally I realized they were just not going to work. In fact I think the pressure of the shoe rubbing and pressing on the back my heel was making my AT much worse than it really was.
Finally, I broke down and bought a pair of size 11.5. I ran in them for the first time today and I'm finally back in a happy place.
I lined up all three shoes:

If you look below closely at the photo of the toe of the all three shoes (the heels are all lined up to each other), you'll see that the old Kinvara 1's in size 11 are about halfway between the 2's in 11.5 and the 2's in size 11.
|L to R: kinvara 2 size 11, kinvara 1 size 11, kinvara 2 size 11.5|
You owe me $80, Saucony.
