Carminas! Thoughts? Sizing?

I am contemplating buying a pair of Carminas, as seen here:


The problem is, I'm pretty sure their sizing isn't the same as US Men's standard. Plus, I have no way to tell if the last will fit properly. At $500 or $600 a pair, plus $50 for returns, I'd like to make sure. 😬

Thoughts? Ideas?

Thoughts?: Good-looking shoes with a great reputation. I love the color. I have no idea re last and fit, I truly do not.

The only consistency I see is to order either normal US size (which is one UK size smaller) or a half or whole size below that. Their EE width is supposedly similar to the US D width.
 
If it's any help, I wear a size 10.5M from the vast majority of U.S. shoe manufacturers. The European size that fits me essentially just as well is 44.
