    If you see "sure" in this sort of context, it means "certainly" or "definitely", or sometimes "very" or "really". I believe it's a mostly American term, but is used more and more internationally.

    I sure like those shoes! (I really like those shoes.)
    He sure made a lot of noise! (He certainly made a lot of noise.)
    You sure are pretty! (You are definitely very pretty.)
