I purchased a pair of Nike AirMax 360 [size 13] shoes from a Nike retail outlet in Vadodara, GJ, India. I bought it during a sale for Rs. 10,000 (250$). I got it at 40% discount i.e. at Rs. 6000 (150$). These shoes have air-padded soles i.e. the soles are filled with pressured air [or whatever]. I used it for about a month, and then one of those soles punctured. I took it back to the store I purchased it from and asked for a replacement. The store guy asked me to come after 3 days. When I went back, he said that he would offer me a replacement, however I would get a replacement of Rs. 6000/- and not Rs. 10,000 which is what the shoe originally costed. As far as I am concerned, I should be provided with the exact shoe that I bought from them. However, they said that the Air Max 360 production has been ceased, which I do doubt and asked me to pick up any other item worth Rs. 6000/- or pay the balance in case of a higher valued item. The thing here is that, even though I did take adavantage of the sale, as of today, I have not recieved any benefit at all. And this is not the matter of exchange.. it's a matter of guarantee. I was given a defective item and it became non-functional within 1 month of purchase. Do you think my stance is right?
