Striking method in heavy boots?

I notice when I wear combat boots, or any other heavy shoe, my footwork is slow but have better balance. In a self- defense situation, I probaly wouldnt be able to standup with the offender because of the shoes slowing me down. Is there a method to fix that? I guess keeping distance and going for a long range moves, with the added weight and balance from the shoes it will transverse a bit more power.
