Product Details
Our latest take on a boyfriend fit was inspired by the kind of old-school cowboy jeans we always wish we could find at a thrift store. With a tall rise that can be worn high at the natural waist or low and slouchy (hello, options), this bootcut style has a cool look, for sure.

Retro Crop Bootcut Jeans: Knee-Rip Edition

Retro Crop Bootcut Jeans: Knee-Rip Edition is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super duper flattering! First of all, these jeans are 100% cotton which means it has no stretch which makes them amazing!!!! Im only 5’4 so i was afraid the 11” front rise would be too much but it is incredibly flattering and i dont think it makes me look short. I received them in the mail yesterday and im currently wearing them with a black turleneck and booties. I feel like a million bucks and i love the retro 70s feel. Super sexy. These will be in heavy rotation. Im a true 28 in madewell and thats the size i ordered them in. They ran slightly large in the waist so i could have def gone with a 27 but these look/feel amazing so i decided to keep them in this size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings you back in all the right ways! As a person who grew up in the late 70s and into the 80s, I've avoided anything termed "mom jeans" and most jeans with high waists that aren't skinnies but these - while certainly not mom jeans - have the best of all worlds: the cool retro vibe of the 70s but with today's technology to ensure the best fit in all areas - this is the perfect time of year to sport them with low boots, sneakers, and flats or heels of any style.... they aren't overly-distressed at the torn knee which again makes them the perfect addition to anyone's wardrobe.... I am so happy the weekend is upon me to wear them day and night with a simple accessory change as the selvedge details makes me feel like a French model. They run to the slightly small side of true - perhaps more fitted in the seat area that your stretchier jeans but I did order my usual 25 and am very happy with the fit and finish! They look amazing with my boyfriend flannel and cropped Sherpa jacket I just bought here~

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bootcuts I never have worn bootcut jeans ever since elementary school and I really wanted to hop on the current trend but was pretty scared to since I thought I looked bad. Madewell honestly has the best styles though and it really amazes me how great these look. They're a little loose but it's better that way since these jeans have no stretch (100% cotton). That sounds bad but they're still really comfortable and don't fall down. And have that real denim feel that jeggings sometimes lose. I love pairing these with mules or heeled boots and a form fitting t-shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans! When I first got these jeans in the mail I thought they were going to need to be exchanged for a larger size. I ordered them in my normal size, but because there isn't stretch to the material it was hard to put on the first time. After a few attempts I got them zipped and now they are comfortably broken in and fit great! I bought the tall length since I am 5'10 and they are perfectly cropped and looked great with sneakers or ankle boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of jeans I love these jeans! I'm always a little skeptical of "cropped" jeans since I'm 5'4", but these hit right above my ankle and are super cute. I got my usual Madewell jeans size, and the waist was a little tight at first but the jeans have loosened up after a few hours. Love the stitching at the waistband, my new favorite Madewell jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. I never write reviews but these jeans are amazing! Super stylish and probably my favorite pair of jeans ever! I wish I had bought in a size 26 too (one size smaller) for a tighter version. If anyone is returning their 26 I want!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cool These jeans are awesome - I ordered a size down (I'm usually 27, but went with 26). They are high waisted - the hips fit me well, but there is a small waist gap. I love the silhouette & knee distressing. These look great with a long tee, or a tucked in top. I love the boot cut look - so gorgeous with sneakers or Chelsea boots. Definitely a new favorite jean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loose but cool! I'm usually a size 26 in Madewell jeans. I ordered these in 26, but they felt more like a 27 -- they were not tight around my waist, or anywhere really. Now I understand why the description refers to these as boyfriend jeans. I like the rips, the cool detailing around the waist and the frayed hem. The semi-loose fit goes great with the boot cut. Super comfy too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE these jeans ! At first they were a little tight in the leg, but after just a day they are broken in and super comfortable. I'm 5'8 and regular length was a bit short so I got a tall and they're perfect.
