Product Details
Lean and modern, this fresh fit kicks out just a bit at the hem for a mini-flare look that works with flats and heels alike. With our extra-high 9 1/2" rise, these jeans are made from some of the world's best holds-you-in, lifts-you-up denim. (So not the bootcuts you wore in junior high, in other words.)

Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Kane Wash

Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Kane Wash is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans. I'm typically between a 26 and 27 in Madewell jeans, but find that most of their jeans stretch out so I usually error on the smaller side. I took these in a 26. I'm 5'7 and 137lbs. These hit me right at the ankles and I love the raw hem. I wasn't sure about the cropped boot cut trend before, but these are so chic that I am fully on board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Jeans. Ever. I absolutely love these jeans. They have all the right things going for them. The high rise is super flattering and comfortable, the length is a perfect crop, and the stretch does wonders for your backside. They are the perfect casual jean. Note: they do have an unfinished hem which you can't see in the pic but they aren't super stringy or anything. I want these jeans in every wash. I'm 5'3, 120Ib and wear a 26 in madewell jeans. I went with my regular size and while they do stretch out a bit, I don't mind since I always wear them with a belt anyways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello legs! I was worried that these were going to make my legs look like tree trunks (I'm muscular), but they are incredibly flattering from all angles. LOVE the higher rise too--no drooping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from jeans to live in I've been wearing these pretty much every day since I purchased them three months ago. They're so incredibly comfortable, and I love the high rise. I'm 5'2" so while these are supposed to be crops, for me they hit at just at the ankle. I bought a second pair when they went on sale to give my original pair a break. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five on quality is that they fade quite a bit, so they're not a very dark black after a couple of washes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans! These jeans fit amazing. I did not think I would be a fan of the high waist but not only is it comfortable, it is also very flattering. There is decent amount of stretch. I did not size down because i do not like a too tight fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jean for every girl When I hear demi-boot cut I automatically think "those are only going to look on a tall figure" (I'm 5'4)...I was wrong. These jeans are ridiculously flattering. The fitted leg with a little flare at the end is just...perfect. Lately I've been tired of the constant skinny jean and these are the perfect substitute. Normally in Madewell pants I'm 26-27 depending these I sized down to 25. They're very stretchy so keep that in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best pair of jeans! i love these jeans and i agree with other reviews that you should size down. I love how they are also slightly frayed at the bottom - great fit and color! i would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trendy and flattering I can't recommend these jeans enough. The high rise is so flattering and the little flare really balances out your legs if you have thicker thighs, contrary to what the other reviewer said. They do stretch out, so I recommend sizing down. I ordered one size smaller than my usual, and was miserable for a day and a half -- I worried that they were too tight and I wouldn't be able to break them in, but they eventually gave way and now they are PERFECT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from give me ALL of the cali demi-boot! I LOVE these... they're a perfectly faded black and have an unfinished hem... I have these in the donovan and while I needed to size up in those, I needed to size down in these since the denim is softer/stretchier. the fit is fantastic and again, they're perfect. please, please make some in indigo or a dark dark blue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from winner! These jeans have a lot going for them. They taper in enough at the knee to have a slim fit but have a moderate bootcut. They are UNHEMMED and that isn't really visible in the pics. I tried them in the faded blue (Cali) version and didn't like them on me, but the faded black (Kane) works; maybe because the fabric has a smoother, cleaner look or because it's dark. Also, I'm in my upper 50s so maybe the Calis are just too youthful. Size-wise it was spot on in my usual 27. I often try 26, 27 and 28, and this landed where we reviewers say we didn't have to go up or down a size. Another point of interest is that the black isn't that pure rich black that you get bummed out about after a few washings when it fades because it already comes faded. They have a more casual look and you know that from the get-go. Bottom line, I'm surprised I like these as much as I do, and think they're a great jean during warm months (not sure yet how to style them with footwear when it's cold).
