I haven't worn them much indoors, but I doubt it would be a problem. As far as noise, they aren't as quiet as my Red Wings with a crepe sole or sneakers, but they aren't that far off either. They're definitely quieter than any dress shoe with a heel and leather sole or topy or Dainite. Really, as long as you're not looking for a really low profile sole, they will be fine. And if they wear faster than you like, which would be my one concern, just get them resoled.
