I  have a special leg disorder requiring me to wear custom orthotic shoes. I wanted to convert these shoes to golf shoes but I needed to find receptacles for golf cleats so we could a fix them into the sole of the shoes and then add cleats.  My orthopedist is willing to build a sole around the receptacles. Does anyone know where I can buy the receptacles for fast twist, tri lock, PINS  or Q lock.

PS
I've already tried quickspikes and other golf shoe converters but they don't work.

i think its called a "last" but not sure  the exact term    its not just the cleat hole thing    its a plastic or metal form with the   cleat holes attached to it.  

go buy a new pair   of golf shoes  that are blemished    and have the shoe maker take them apart    and get each "last" out of the blemished shoes and  use them in the pair you want built

Yeah I called softspike and Champ's. They only sell receptacles to shoe manufactures.  For what ever reason they to sell you cleats but like keeping the recpticles on lock

I spoke with Custom cleats. They affix cleat plates to the bottom of shoes but, because my orthotics are custom made my orthopedist says it won't work.

I've been doing this on football (soccer) cleat studs for a long time. Get a softspike with metal threads, then take it to your local hardware store and get the proper length and thread size t-nut (it may actually be metric).  A drill and some creativity and you put the t-nut underneath the insole and thread the softspike on the other end.

How do you get them to stick in rubber soles? Do you glue them or nail them in?

You can glue them but it's not really necessary,  the more you tighten down the soft spike,  the more the t-nut will pull into the last (the cardboard piece under the insole).

T-nuts go in from the top. Drill a hole, insert the T-nut from the topside of the footbed (under your insoles) and screw the spike in from the bottom.

I have to say,..I can't see this working properly. Unless the shoe is designed as a cleat , you are going to run into some issues. The rubber sole of a shoe (orthepedic or not) is not firm enough to do this with.
I mean, sure...you can put the spikes in on the bottom, but unless there are large hard plastic plates plates to distribute the pressure of the screw of the spike accross the entire sole of your foot, you are going to wind up feeling like you are walking on nails.
. .you might as well just hammer nails through your feet. It will probably feel just about as comfortable.

If the footwear in question is somehow intended for this use, then good luck. But if it is not, you are going to have bloody screw holes inboth feet

Also, if you really want to do this correctly.
Bring your orthopedic shoes to a leatherworker/shoe repair shop.
Ask them to re-sole them using cleat bottoms.

I wasn't trying to come off mean before. I just don't want u ruining a pair of expensive orthotics, only to find out it didn't work, and is very painful

As stated before, a much better option would be to have last such is on Ashworth cardiff or Ecco street sole added to appropriate shoe form, these "spikeless" alternative shoes provide excellent traction. You may also want to have orthopedic doctor/podiatrist contact shoe manufacturer directly. I personally am aware that New Balance and Nike have assisted those with special issues in the past.
