Would you expect a huge company like Adidas to at least offer you another pair of trainers??

I bought a pair of Adidas trainers from Littlewoods catalogue nearly 2 weeks ago. They fit fine and were ok while i walked round the house and then to school for a couple of days but as soon as I started doing proper walking they made my feet so sore i nearly cried!!!
I cant send them back to the catalogue because i've worn them for a week and they're not falling apart or anything, so I emailed Adidas. Here's the reply I got..........

Looks like a standard reply. tbh your contract is with the retailer not the manufacturer so they aren't obliged to do anything so no I don't think you can expect a refund or replacement from Adidas. However if they are not fit for the purpose described in catalogue ie. you bought as a proper running shoe but are actually only suitable for leisure use then you could take it up with the catalogue retailer.
