When I look at the bottom of the skates, I can see that the left holder is actually mounted differently than the right holder. The left skate rivets are closer to the inside edge of the sole. However, I've noticed the lack of holder/rivet symmetry on two pairs of my Grafs before, which performed well, so maybe it's normal since the left and right boots aren't always perfectly identical?

What do you think? I bought these skates new off eBay, so I don't know if I can work with a warranty. Thanks.
Actually the outsoles don't seem to be centered the same on both skates, so even though the holders are not centered relative to the outsoles, they might be centered relative to the boot. It's not easy to judge.
