Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Essex Wash

Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Essex Wash is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Jeans!!! The quality is superb. I am 5'4" and 100 pounds. Sometimes I'm a 26 in jeans but I followed what the other reviewers said about the jeans running slightly large so I ordered size 25. I'm glad I listened as they fit perfectly. They did not get baggy on me either. Not only that, they are supposed to be a cropped jean but because of my height, they hit me about 1.5 inches below the ankle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Pair of Raw Hem Jeans I'd been looking for a pair of raw-hem jeans for quite a while. These are everything that I'd hoped they would be, and for a great price. In fact, I'm wearing them right now. I ordered them in my usual size, 24. They were a bit snug but have loosened up with a few wears. On point, on trend, comfortable... I couldn't be happier. Actually, I'd love these in a few different washes! Madewell, if you're listening, please please make these in your light summer wash, a super dark wash & black. And maybe even a knee-tear style. Thanks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection These are absolutely lovely!! I've been wanting to purchase these for a while but patiently waited for them to go on sale. I'm usually almost always a size 27 in madewell jeans and 27 fit pretty well, slightly larger than other 27 but 26 was too small. The fit is GREAT, perfect bum lift, VERY flattering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from trifecta of nerves all turns out great You know sometimes online shopping is a nerve racking experience. You are buying from a new brand, haven't worn the style before, want to wear the item for a specific occasion. Well this purchase was all of those things. I went with my regular size 26 (5'6" and 133lbs) and gave it a shot. They arrived quickly, the fit was perfect and the silhouette was exactly what I was hoping for in these jeans. They are much higher than any other jean I have, just a millimeter below my belly button but they make my butt look more round and that's a good thing. They hit just above my ankle exactly where I was hoping and they have just enough but not too much stretch so they feel like real jeans but have some give. These are perfect for spring with the faded but not overly done color. They are also darker in all the right places. Madewell made a first time buyer very happy. I will definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and stylish! These jeans are simply amazing and beautiful and of super high quality. I usually wear a size 30 in jeans (but I found that varies a little with Madewell jeans. Depending on the style, I may need a 30 or 31). I am 5'8 and weigh 171 pounds and I had initially ordered these jeans on a size 30, but had to return and order a 31 because the 30 were too tight and not comfortable. The 31 fits just perfectly. I recommend these jeans. Super on trend and even more beautiful in person!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super stylist and comfortable to Boot I am 50 years old, weigh 126 lbs., 5' 8" tall. I normally wear super skinny. I wanted a new look with a high waist (my norm is 8.5") that holds me in and a ankle length to show my slender ankles, slender feet with a ever so slight flare without robbing my bank account. And, I wanted a slight edge without looking ridiculous. This JEAN fits the bill. I so recommend this jean. It's a tremendous value because it offers so much including style and comfort. Make this Jean your number one purchase in 2016!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TTS for my body type I have a large waist and I ordered the 32. 31 or 32 is my usual denim size. Being high waisted, the 31 would have been way to tight in the waist. Biggish girls you can wear these - I am 5' 6" 165 with a large waist and these look good. They fit fairly tight, if they stretch at all it won't be a problem. I have a straighter shape rather than hourglass. Good luck with your fitting :o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and style Great quality denim and love the style and the high waist is fantastic. I do find the fading a little exaggerated for my taste and I trimmed down the frayed hems because they were a little over the top too, but overall a really well fitting pair of jeans that look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice but not on me I have several madewell dresses and tee shirts and love them. I have tried several jeans but never feel comfortable in them. Maybe I'm just a dress girl.
