I have already tried toe grips on him. Toe grips are useful in protecting hardwood floors from scratch marks, but in case of traction, it is not much help. Any suggestions on these: https://doggyshoe.com/dog-traction-socks-booties-for-hardwood-floors/, found it on the internet yesterday.

You'll want to find ways to secure those surfaces in place, so they don't slip out from under the dog or the humans in the house. I've had good results using clear silicone caulking applied to the back of carpet runners, mats and area rugs, which makes them anti-skid without leaving the residue of the double-stick tape that's sold for area rugs and runners.
The boots can be helpful, but even if the dog readily accepts them they're really not something you can leave on the dog full-time--their skin will need a break from the friction the boots will create, no matter how well they fit. The fewer areas in the house your dog needs to wear boots in order to keep his footing, the easier it will be for him to age gracefully and enjoy many more years with you.
