need slippery shoes

My mother has Parkinson's disease and cannot walk in all the rubber soled shoes around today - and finds it impossible to find a SLIPPERY shoe that she can where so that she can slide her feet - which is the only way she can move her feet due to the Parkinson's.

What is your suggestion about where to get shoes that work for Parkinsons patients....the rubber soled shoes grab the floor or carpet and cause people with movement disorders to fall right over
- not good!

Thank you.

Full-length viscoelastic insoles incorporating areas of softer density in the heel and metatarsal region. Raised metatarsal pad aids in desired realignment of metatarsal heads.
