Runs small; slight desing flaw

I wrote another review but this is my update:
I'm on my 6th pair of these to find the best fit. I'm a female and usually wear a size 10. I've tried the women's 11, 10.5, 10 and 9.5. I also tried the men's 8.5 and now I'm wearing the men's size 9. The men's size 9 seems to be the best fit for me. The women's 10.5 fit but there is a significant design flaw in 4 out of the 6 of these shoes. On my right foot, where the final lace eye seam meets the toe portion of the shoe it has a very uncomfortable seam/bump that hits the side/top of my big toe. The men's 9 seems to be the most comfortable. I can still feel the bump a little bit but probably due to the shoe being a men's, it's a little larger overall and is not as uncomfortable. I couldn't feel it in the women's 11, probably for the same reason (but the shoe was way too big for my foot). All of the others I could feel it and it was not something that could be overlooked as it would be horrible trying to lift in shoes with that thing. I'm going to go lift in these today and see how it feels. Hope this helps. I was really surprised about the sizing...I've never had a men's size 9 fit me!
