Nike Football Boots / smell terrible

1 Scotland, Grampian, United Kingdom Review updated:

My parter has bought his son several pairs of football boots/astros over the last few months because each pair developed an awful smell like cats urine. we have realised through this web page and television we are not the only people. could you tell me what nike are doing about this? and how i can go about resolving this constant problem please.

    Hiya, my dad bought my brother a pair of football boots and we are having the same problem.. They smell like cats wee..
    How did you go about getting your money back? Did you just ring the sports shop that you bought them from?

    This smell is still happening with Nike boots, I bought apair for my son in Jan 2010 and had to take them back in Feb 2010 (he wore them once), awful smell of cat pee.
    surely these boots should be removed from sale
