Boots hard to get on solution
Have to start a new post to answer since I'm not a boot guy.
Had this same problem when I got some Aline footbeds, which have deliberately grippy top surfaces to keep feet from slipping. Got worse with my new Intuition liners which seem to be grippy all over. For the last couple of years I've been smearing "personal lube" on the tops of the footbeds. I use KY Intimate Mist. Comes in a little pump bottle. Available in the womens' section of the supermarket if you don't feel like going to the sex toy store. Gets some stares in the lodge. But I think I have a better solution - Body Glide. Runners use it for anti-chafing. Available at REI or running stores. Comes in a little deodorant type tube. Tried it in the living room yesterday and it seems to work well. Smeared it on the tongue and back of the liner and sole and heel of the sock and isn't too messy. Will try on the snow tomorrow now that it's cold in PA.
