Sticky boot soles

I had a pair of steelcapped boots with what I think were rubber soles.

I left them sitting on a shelf for a few years, and when I picked up, the soles were very soft. They were initially covered with a fine layer of dust, but if you moved the rubber around it was sticky, sort of like a very thick caramel?

Were my boot soles probably rubber? What caused the material, whatever it was, to become soft and sticky?
