Actually, I have a friend who attached a pair of cleats to the soles of some combat boots for winter mountainbiking.
I've never done it, but I would expect to have a problem with the example that you gave. Most shoes are made by glueing the upper materials onto a board that becomes the sole. They aren't designed to withstand continually pulling upward on the upper. My bet is that the shoes would quickly come apart.
