I don’t have any experience with Surefoot insoles.
As you are healing from surgery and having something removed you may need to wear an insert.
As things heal you may be able to decrease the time you need to wear an insert.

Did your feet kill you in those boots prior to the surgery?
Have you watched the episodes on flat feet?

Wearing an insert or not would be more person/situation specific vs top level athletes who use an insert.
