Evolv Geshido Sizing

Hi all,
I am a beginner rock climber and I just recently purchased the evolv geshidos. I bought them because they were one of the few shoes the just felt great.
I am normally an 11.5 shoe size, but when I tried on the 11.5 at the rock gym, they were painful, almost to the point where I couldnt climb. So I went up a size and they felt great. They are tight, but not uncomfortable.
But now I'm worried that if they stretch at all, they will be too sloppy.
So, my dilemma is: should I return them and get an 11.5 or should I keep the 12s? This is pretty much based on whether or not these shoes stretch
Thank you!

Did you get the lace-up or the velcro?

I normally wear a 10.5 street shoe and went up to the 11 in the lace-up. I felt like the velcro fit a little bigger and probably would have stayed with the 10.5 if I had gotten that version.

They are lined leather and will stretch around half a size.
