Should I buy bowling shoes, or are there any tricks to make sure the rented shoes slide?

I like to bowl, but I don't bowl very often (maybe a handful of times per year). I'm decently adequate. I roll the ball straight, no curving. I use a house ball.
The problem is, I'm terrible if my shoes don't slide. The shoes which I rent seem to barely ever slide. I would have a lot more fun if they did. I see some bowling shoes on amazon for less than $40, and I assume if I bought them, with the amount I bowl, they would last a very long time. Should I buy some, or will shoes at that price have some problems I might not know about? Are there any tricks to make rented shoes slide?
