It stands to reason that your boots are not going to fit the same for hiking/walking as they will for riding. There are plenty of opposing physics to looks at. I have the exact same issue with my 32 Lashed, but I can hardly fault the boot. Ya my toes push the front when I'm walking but its not like there is slippage or lack of fit. If you want something that will hike well, you're going to have to compromise on size/fit a little bit.
Goto REI and shop for hiking boots and they will sell you 1/2 a size or more than what you normally wear, whereas most boot salespeople will try to downsize ya. Just for example.
