You pretty much could not, or would not want, to walk in a skate boot. That is how stiff they are. Folks who use a dress shoe are skating a style of skating that is not as taxing on the shoe. A dress shoe would not likely make a good speed boot. But for a less stressful kind of skating, it can, and does work.
