I was actually thinking of cutting a pair of soles out of an old bicycle tire and sticking them on with contact cement.

The shoes are marked "made in Italy", they seem very nice and quality.
I understand all of that, I just don't understand why you wouldn't want the extra advantage of a cleat if you were going to use shoes that are single purposed. It's not like you can walk in them very well, even without the cleat.
