I need to replace the catalytic converters 2012 SE Walker Cats any good?

At 142,000 my 2012 focus se hatch has finally thrown its first code. P0420 “cat below threshold”. So I need to replace it. Been looking around. Besides expensive OEM is there another brand I can pay less for ? Looks like Walker is one. NAPA auto parts one any good ? any others ? And where should I buy from ?
Thanks.

My 14 was leaking around those same sensors. I'll let you know it's cheaper to replace the valve cover itself because those seals are expensive to replace. I bought a brand new valve cover assembly with the gasket from EBay for under 50 bucks.
