9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Seamed Step-Hem Edition

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans: Seamed Step-Hem Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first pair of Madewell jeans and CERTAINLY not my last I thought the cute seam in the front of the jeans are very cute. They make your legs look super long and very flattering. I also am obsessed with the high waist!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style AND comfort I have always loved the way Madewell jeans fit me and these were no exception! Fit like a glove, yet super stretchy and comfy that I could definitely do a squat in them! I am a CrossFitter, so it's typically hard to find jeans that fit my waist and also my bigger thighs/calves. And I adore the style!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool seamed and step hem details! I came across these jeans in store. At first I wasn’t sure about the front seam and the step hem together but they look GREAT on. They are comfortable and I took my normal regular size 26. For reference, I’m 5’10” and 145 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovin the front seam I purchased these because I love a good front seam raw hem jean. However I am not a big fan of the step hem but I can live with it. I decided to try the short inseam for the first time since I am only 5' & to my surprise they were pretty short on me which never happens, the short inseam would definitely be way too short on someone any taller than me. For reference I usually get a 24 reg but this time I went with the 25 short. Overall the fit is great, I think they have a nice stretch to them without being too stiff & the front seam didn't make them hard to bend in at all! The wash is also a very nice medium to light wash, overall I would recommend! P.S. please come out with some dark wash 9" high rise skinny jeans thanks Madewell you the best:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Jeans First off, let me state, that I am a jean connoisseur. Second, I have a very curvy body, my waist size is much smaller than my hips. Not to mention I have thicker thighs than the average girl. With that said, I love these light colored jeans. To my surprise, they fit my 5'4" body like a glove. Typically jeans minimize my butt (yes, even Good American jeans), however, these jeans make my butt look good. When I tried them on, I fit my typical size, but ended up sizing down, since there is a good amount of stretch. Like most stretchy jeans, they do stretch out during the day while wearing them. I like the details, they don't look funky once wearing them. Also, the weight of the jean will be perfect for those hot summer days and chilly nights. Overall, I'm really digging these jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Shorter than expected, Size Down Great stretch and lightweight denim wearable where I live in Canada for the summer. I usually wear a 27 in Madewell jeans (sometimes get tall and sometimes stick with the regular), but could have gotten away with a 26T as they give and lose their shape just after an hour of wear! I'm 5'8" and 150 lbs (strong yoga body) ;) and went with the 27 tall. I think I would love the style if it were a 10" high rise!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tried in store, but no go... These are super cute looking, but when I tried them on I didn't like them. The front seam, which is such a nice looking detail, doesn't have any give and thus made the pants uncomfortable when trying to bend at the knee. I also thought they ran somewhat smaller than typical Madewell-I have 25 and 26's in Madewell jeans (usually a 26 or 27 everywhere else) and the 26 in these felt uncomfortably snug. Combined with the seam over the knee I felt a little like a sausage unfortunately, and did not purchase. For reference, I'm 5'7x127.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from .They are not flattering at all I am 5;6" 118 pounds........ I got a 27. They fit fine but made me look heavy. Not flattering at all. and the hems are just strange. One was cut off to the side an the other in the front. I loved the color and lightness of the fabric. I wanted to love the front seam but they add ten you..... no one needs that............ not a good thing. Returned them. I wish there was another style in this shade and light fabric.
