I'd be grateful if anybody could give advise me on my rights for the following issue.
I bought a pair of waterproof boots from a well-know firm that sells outdoor & rock climbing gear.
The boots have developed cracks on the panel that runs around the shoe and is attached to the sole.
The sole itself is fine.
The boots however are no longer fit for purpose.
I showed them to the shop assistant who told me that it's general wear and tear and there's nothing they can do about it.
I asked if they could repair them and was told I could (buy) and try a tent repair tape, but that they weren't sure if it would work.
I am in doubt as to whether that is really the case and was wondering if anyone knows what my rights are in this situation.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
