Sizing of loafers: Gucci & Allen Edmonds?

Hello, I currently own a pair of Allen Edmonds Verona II loafers and was able to try them on in a store before purchasing so their size 11 fits me perfectly. I am looking at purchasing a pair of Gucci 1953 horsebit loafers online, and due to logistics, I can not try these on in-person. I see mixed opinions online of Gucci's sizing but I know that these two are both popular models here so I was wondering if someone could help clear up the sizing issue. If I am an 11D in Allen Edmonds Verona II, what size would I be in the 1953 bits?

This link should help a bit. Seems like Gucci loafers trend towards being a half to full size smaller, but that it can vary quite a bit from style to style. I'd recommend ensuring that whichever seller you're buying from has a return policy so that you can order another if the first try doesn't fit or order a couple different sizes to find the best fit and return the others.
