    I suppose that it depends on the size of your calves. I personally find the regular shaft opening small enough. I wear a pair of 988 boots regularly, and they are already slim on my calves. I have some muscle on my calves, but I'm definitely not a bodybuilder or anything. I suppose that if you have really skinny legs, then maybe the "s" is for you for the same look, but ime the regular is already slim enough.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't seem to find specific info. I just bought a pair of FG Horse 988s in size 45. I usually wear a 44, and occasionally can fit a 43 (other brands, I haven't worn Guidi before), but I am finding these to be super tight. The length is fine but the width is tight, as well as the leather at the front of the boot at the ankle. Can anyone comment on whether this will stretch? Or do I need to size up?

    I have 988 s in horse in a size 45 as well, and I'm normally a 44 as well, and a 43 in like, Common Projects and other Serena Sole sneakers. Mine were a snug fit at the beginning, but they quickly stretched to be pretty comfortable. I would not say that they are loose, and I don't wear anything but light socks with them, but they are certainly extremely comfortable at this point.
