No. Field boots have laces from mid arch to above the ankle. Dress boots have no laces. Field boots are not approved foot wear for some shows.
I agree that you do not want to ride in these. Purchase muck boots and change into your riding footwear prior to mounting. There are also 'rubbers' you can purchase to go over the top of your footwear.
