I paid £49 for them on my visa I have a feeling I can't they are closed now so can't ring them will have to go tomorrow am What do you think I feel I've just wasted all his birthday money!HELP
Unless there is something wrong with them, then it is down to the goodwill of the shop. They have no obligation to exchange/refund something just because you made the wrong choice for a birthday present.
Don't think you have any rights as such if there is nothing wrong with the shoes, but I'd call the shop and explain the situation. If you're very lucky, they might refund you, but it's more likely that they will give you a credit note to use another time.
