if they havent been worn then yes you shuld be able to but its at the shops discretion. take him with you to see if there is anything he likes, as the store may be more likely to exchange.

has he worn them?

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.

Only out of their goodwill I'm afraid. No legal obligation on their part if you just change your mind, unless you had specifically agreed it verbally at the time you purchased. Sorry, but worth a try.
