Barefoot to Heel

Hello there, just recently got up to 6 miles continuous running in zero drop running shoes ( Merrell Trail glove)


I was wondering because i will be running in combat boots in the next month or so for.... obvious reasons. Will i have a advantage and perhaps increased endurance ?

I always come accross people having to take long time to transition to Barefoot running and how its so much harder. 

I started off running with barefoot shoes when i began running in august, toook it up a notch in janurary, added speed work of 400m repeats at max effort for 8 reps
Walking recovery..

So what can i expect for running in heeled and cushioned shoes coming from zero drop and zero cushioned trail shoes ?

    Here's a pertinent study from 2014:

    https://www.army.mil/article/121873/usariem_researchers_study_soldiers_running_styles

    "As far as we're concerned, there does not seem to be a benefit to modifying Soldiers' running style," ... "If it's not broke, don't fix it, is essentially our perspective at this point, I would say." ... "Neither group was faster," ... "Neither group got injured less frequently."
