Yes, but why it is tu zapato and su casa (for singular)?

I will take a stab at this....Mi in Spanish is what you use for singular posessive. Mi Amour - my love singular (1 love) Mis Amours - The mis is what you use when you have more than one Mis amours- my loves. We don't really have to do that in English so it can be a bit confusing. Same thing with tu and tus only tu amour would be your love and tus amours would be your loves. Su and sus would be his/her love (su amour) and sus amours would be his/her loves. I think su and sus can also be used with the formal form, but am unsure so I will stop here.

Yes, su and sus are used with él, ella, and usted/ustedes.
