With all the socks I've ever made I make the foot the same number of inches as the person's shoe size. For instance, I wear a size 7 - I make the sock 7" before the toe decrease. My mom and sister wear an 8 - knit to 8" before toe decrease. Friend is an 8.5 - 8.5" before toe decrease, etc. It's worked every time. I'd knit to 11" before toe decrease. At least 10.5.
