Default Aluminium support inside boot

Hi Doc,

I'm looking at mounting a pair of vans skate shoes, but the sole is very thin/flexible rubber, so i'm thinking of using a 1.2mm thick piece of aluminium cut to the shape of the innersole. I just wanted to ask your advice and see if you had any other ideas on what i could do. At the moment i'm just trialling countersinking a normal countersunk bolt into it, but by the time you countersink it so it's flush you're not left with much meat and i'm worried this would be almost as likely to pull through as the rubber sole.

I've spent a bit of time searching but can't seem to find any information on anyone doing this, so maybe it's not the greatest idea? heaps of people seem to glue carbon fibre to the bottom of the shoe but that isn't going to help stop the bolts from pulling through.

I want to go skating, I don't care about nothing.
