Cosy slippers with decent tread to avoid slipping?

I want to buy my mum a really nice pair of cosy slippers - ideally boot-type slippers. She has some wooden floors and I need to buy slippers with a decent tread to minimise the risk of her slipping and falling. Any suggestions? Happy to pay what is needed for the right ones!

Any Totes ones i think would tick all your boxes, Currently on sale in debenhams in different colours. Or usually found in Tk maxx too. it will only let me link to this page but there are tons of other styles

They come in different styles and colours, I have on fair isle knitted socks, but also have the grey cable knit booties. Love them grin

My mum goes through slippers like there is no tomorrow. I bought her a pair of these for xmas 2013 and they are still going strong. They have a proper hardwearing sole and are very cosy inside.
I know they aren't boots but they are a shoe rather then a mule type slipper.

Crocs mammoth? Very popular with my dad as he has solid fuel heating so goes outside a lot to get wood, coal, etc from the shed, and was wrecking normal moccasin type slippers quickly. He suffers from bad circulation so warm slippers also a priority. These tick all the warm and hard wearing boxes plus can be machine washed!

Geisswein slippers aren't cheap but they are wool, very warm and have a rubber sole that doesn't slip

Not cheap, but Ugg slippers are the best thing in the whole world!
