You may want to consider that House shoes are interchangeable, left or right. And, your push off shoe should provide friction with the approach to give you the push off.

So, the sole on your push off foot, not your slide foot, is important as well.

Also, where is your trailing leg in the slide? My toe rubs the floor. As a result, I get shoes that have an extra piece of protection on the toe.
