It seems for short track ice skating you want a high stiff boot, your inline boot may work.

For long track you want a low flexible boot, leather.

Inline boots aren't leather, and after frequent use the skater developes "horns" calouses on the heel to proctect the body, I would think you would welcome a leather boot to give the foot a rest period before going back to road skating.

For just skating around a rink for exercise I would think you would definitly want a leather boot.
