When you print phone cases, what hardness level do you print with?

I'm about to buy some flex, and I'm thinking about printing a wallet, a phone case, a belt, and I want to see what flip flops feel like when they are 3D printed.

I'm looking at 95A and 98A, but I don't know if there is any real difference. Below is some links on what I'm looking at

Hardness levels: https://www.smooth-on.com/page/durometer-shore-hardness-scale/

Filament 98A (it's 1kg for $21): https://www.amazon.com/PRILINE-TPU-1KG-Filament-Dimensional-Accuracy/dp/B07JYYHYYQ/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1541704611&sr=8-10&keywords=tpu

Filament 95A (it's 0.8KG for $25) https://www.amazon.com/YOYI-Flexible-Filament-Tolerance-Blue/dp/B07DPLV4PC/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1541659635&sr=8-5&keywords=tpu

If you think those levels are too hard for what I want, then please let me know. If you have any suggestions then also please let me know.

As far as the wallet, this is the one I'm talking about. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3089061

For the belt, this is what I'm looking into https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2966921
