Technically, where you don't have laces, there is no need for a lower plate. I would keep the heel plate, and add a set of toe spikes and call it good.
My two cents? I like the heel plate, but it'll most likely crack over repeated wear, so be careful.
I'm also going to have to remove the heel armor, it keeps popping off when I don them
On one of my pairs of Boots I just Drilled a Hole in the Center Seam of the Heal .Then I ran a Small bolt (from the inside) then capped it with an acorn nut ..... You coulduse a Spiked nut if you wish
