Struggling with Engineered Wood Floor Decision. Any help appreciated.

We are doing whole main level and stairs > 2000 sf. New construction. I have looked at too many and narrowed it down to these 4 based on the look I like and price that I can afford.

I don't want people to have to take shoes off when we have parties but we can go shoeless when home. I have 2 small dogs and some day hope to add a big dog. We have older teens and lots of family and friends with kids and entertain often.

I have had Mannington Engineered Red Oak flooring for 15-20 years with little to no issues.

1) Pravada Chanel

European White Oak

Veneer Thickness 3mm

Finish Wire Brush UV Lacquer

Width 9.5"

Length 24-72 random

Thickness .55"

2) Heidelberg Flooring

European White Oak Frankfurt

veneer ?

Finish Osmo PolyX Hardware Oil

Width: 7.5"

Length: ?

Thickness: 3/4"

3) Unique Wood Floors

Cicerone Pilsner

French White Oak

Veneer: 3.4 mm

Finish Matte Laquer

Width: 6"

Length: Random to 7'

Thickness: 9/16"

4) Hearthwood Floors Woodlands Suede or Sunkissed

White Oak

Veneer: ? just says 5 ply engineered hardwood

Finish Brushed Matte Scratch Resistant Aluminum Oxide

Width: 6.5"

Length" up to 60"

Thickness: 3/8"

* this is only one on my list from a local flooring store and most affordable; my concern is length and thickness. and no idea of veneer layer.

Thanks for any insight.
