Arrowhead sizing

Hello climbing world, I am at a common crossroads when it comes to buying shoes online, I don't know how to size them! If there's anyone who could provide some input about the 5.10 arrowheads it would be much appreciated.
I am a size 9 running shoe. I also am a size 9 blackwing, however I could squeeze my foot into an 8.5 but circulation was quickly cut off.
So I am unsure whether or not to risk it and go with an 8.5 or the 9 for the arrowhead because different websites and people recommend smaller or the same vs. the blackwing.
Thank you for your response.

I bought a pair of Arrowheads online. My thoughts were a gym shoe for cheap plus I know the size as I own a pair of 5.10 Pinks. My Pinks are 11 but size 11 Arrowheads weren't even close to fitting. Beware, Arrowheads fit small.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
