Deciding between two grooming gloves

S0 I was looking at grooming gloves. I found these two on Amazon, and I like them because they are a left/right-hand pair (which I feel like will make the petting more natural), and they have fingers so that I can really massage my dogs and make them enjoy it. Both of these products, though, mostly advertise removing excess hair for shedding dogs, and I wondered at their ability to simply comb out a Shih Tzu mix coat (all three of our dogs are Shih Tzu mixes). Especially when the coat starts getting longer and more susceptible to mats (I know this won't demat, but if a daily brushing with these can prevent mats that's what I'm looking for). The only difference that I've been able to find between the two is that one is a twofer deal, and it's less expensive? Wondering if that translates to 'lower price=lower quality'. So my two questions are if you guys think that these will work for my non-shedding dogs, and if you see any difference in the two or if I should just go with the cheaper twofer deal so that I have extra?

This is the single, more expensive pair:

This is the cheaper, twofer deal pair:

The second one is on sale for prime, which might be why it's cheaper.

Honestly, I'm leaning towards the second one, but I just thought I would see if you guys had any opinions, or could try to answer the two questions I had.

In all honesty i dont think this will help you much at all. These gloves are more for dogs that blow coat. Husky, Malamute, Shiba inu. Shih Tzu have longer hair so it does fall out as much as a northern breeds coat. So the gloves you are looking at is really to catch any dead hair on the dog and pull it out. The spikes arent very long and won't get all the way down to your dogs under coat. So yes it would brush out the top layer of the coat but you are still going to have mats forming if you dont get all the way down to the skin. For you situation i would recommend a Slicker brush and a tooth comb.
I did just read some reviews on those gloves and it did say it work but also goldens hair is usually thinner then Shih tzus hair, its totally up to you though.

We have a brush for demating. I was just hoping for something for daily brushing that mimics the feel and motion of petting. If the gloves aren't for brushing fur then they won't work for us, but if they can brush fur then we're good to go.
