I second Columbia, but especially the boots. I had these ones before and I wore them out in pretty bad weather (from Ohio so we get a lot of snow) and never had a problem. My mom also had more of a sneaker type from them because she can't stand boots, and they were also good. Just make sure they are waterproof. Mine have generally lasted 2-3 years because I wear out shoes pretty fast. I currently have this pair and they are ok and have lasted me two years but they are not as good as the other ones.

For layering of clothes I would recommend Cuddl Duds. They are super thin but they keep me really warm. They are sold at Target, Kohl's, Walmart, JC Pennys, Macy's, etc. For coats I'd suggest getting a 3 in 1 jacket as they come in layers that you can remove an inner layer or only wear a certain layer if you get too hot. My fave brand is ZeroXposur. But make sure the coat is water proof.

I'd also suggest maybe looking at what the past weather was like so you get an idea of what to expect. You can see it here. Hopefully that link works for you.

my mom doesn't really want to spend money on boots when we're only going to be there for 5 days :/ when she's never going to wear them again after. so i'm just trying to figure out how to still wear plain sneakers when the roads might be icy/slushy, idk...
I'll just be borrowing coats from relatives who live in cold areas for half the year, so i hope they have something i can use.
the weather looks like it might be sunny but cold, but if it's sunny i'm hoping the roads would be drier?

What about a shoe cover? here and here. tbh I've never used them so not sure if they'd help with possibly slipping on ice or keeping a lot of water out though. You could see if she'd want to buy rain boots. I mean idk about where you live but maybe she could reuse those at least.

There's three possible outcomes with the sun in my experience. It could make no difference if it's cold enough. It could melt the snow and it will be slushy and there will be water puddles. Or if it's hot again cold again then you're going to go from slushy and puddles and have them form ice. This is why boots are needed because if you buy a decent pair they'll have bottoms that will help from sliding or possibly falling. Though sometimes it's just inevitable that you fall in bad snow or when there are slushy or icy situations.

If she's really stubborn and refuses to get anything all I can say is that you should bring several pairs extra socks with you when you go out and a also bring a zip lock baggie to put the wet ones in. She should also bring two pairs of tennis shoes so if one pair gets wet she can switch them out and let one dry for a day. As someone who had frostbite as a kid from stupidly wearing tennis shoes in the snow and having wet socks on all day at school, I can tell you you definitely do not want to walk around in wet socks in cold conditions.

The thing you have to consider is that they seem to be having lows in the single digits to the negatives. I can't remember the exact numbers but even being out in those kind of conditions for more than 20-30 minutes can be harmful. That's why having a wearing layers/having thermal undergarments, a good coat, scarf, gloves, and good boots are super important. I'd maybe try and impress this upon her and warn her she could get sick if she ends up constantly having her tennis shoes soaked.
