As I understand it, Golite Footwear used to have a big problem with outsole durability. I think the latest owners of the brand have fixed that, mostly by switching to a very unaggressive lug pattern. I've been pleased with my Timber Lites and Amp Lites in most areas, though everything by Golite Footwear is ugly as sin. I love the zero drop foot midsole, and that is what has made me a convert- my plantar fasciitis has improved a lot. It's hard to find non-narrow, non-minimalist low or zero drop footwear. My 2E feet are a bit wide for the Golite stuff, but at least I'm not constrained- plenty of room in the toe box, etc.
The Surge Lite would be nice for folks who want a mid height boot that isn't crippled by Gore-Tex or being too stiff. Breathability of the fabric bits is closer to Cordura than running shoe mesh, but at least there's no WPB membrane!
Just a +1 from me... :)
