Lowes American Olean strong enough for shower floor?

The tile I chose for the walls in the walk in shower has a matching mosaic, but I saw American Olean at Lowes for considerably less money per square foot. (18$ vs. 4$) It is a beautiful match to the wall tile, but it's thinner.
Anyone put AO mosaic on their shower floor?
I see many bathrooms done with their subway tile and hex on the floor, and I was wondering if anyone would give their opinion on this...
BTW, we prefer the look of the less expensive tile. Budget is always a concern, but we can afford the more expensive tile. Just don't want to make an expensive mistake!

If the shower pan is properly prepared, and the tile is properly set, and you don't drop glass shampoo bottles on it, then it should be fine for a shower.
