I had my Vapor XIX for 2 years with hole drilled in them. Zero sole issues from it (not to mention there are far more, and bigger, rivet holes in the boot so this is no surprise). Did the same thng to my 40's, again, no issues.

I have absolutely no idea if it helps after a skate. I noticed no difference.

During the skate it's noticeable. Not a huge difference, but noticeable. The whole swamp ass boot feel is reduced, and the soles I skate in don't really absorb water nor do the socks, but I sweat a lot. So I'm leaning towards the holes being effective. I might just be one out of a million, but I'm going to keep doing this to skates until holes in the footbed becomes the standard.
