Removing cleats from golf shoes?

Dear Folks:

Spotted these shoes, which look great in a simple way for streetwear, maybe with narrow jeans:

I suspect J&M was better Way Back When.

Are these specifically designed as golf shoes, or are they just old dress shoes with cleats attached.

I would be wearing these on a city street, not a golf course. Can the cleats be removed? When gone, is the sole just a flat surface with holes in it, or must I have the shoe resoled in some way? Ideally it would be flat and I could get a rubber coating and be done with it.

Thanking The Group for its counsel.

If that is possible, that will be a great idea!

I'm not speaking out of great expertise here, but they certainly have the look of dress shoes that were retrofitted for the links. I'd imagine a good shoe repair shop could at least expurgate the spikes by resoling/rehealing the shoes, and there might even be a simpler/less expensive way.
