Product Details
Lean and modern, this fresh bootcut fit kicks out just a bit at the hem for a mini-flare look that works with flats and heels alike. The 9 1/2" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky detail—Magic Pockets in front that offer an extra layer of holds-you-in sorcery for the slimmest, smoothest look yet (plus, a touch of added stretch ensures you're still totally comfortable).

Cali Demi-Boot Jeans: Step-Hem Edition

Cali Demi-Boot Jeans: Step-Hem Edition is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic! These jeans are magic. They are everything all of the other reviewers have said. I am 5'3" and 118lbs and ordered the size 25 based on other reviewers. I'm so glad I did because they fit like a glove without being constricting. The material is so stretchy and soft. I am normally a size 26, for reference. I adore these and will be wearing them all the time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans I didn't thought this style could fit my pear-shaped figure, so last year I skipped Cali Demi-boot jeans without trying. This summer I was in store (not Madewell) and grab to the fitting room similar jeans just for fun. And they worked! So I looked on Madewell for a pair. I'm not a fan of step-hem, but I thought I can cut them even by myself anytime. And now I wear these and don't want to cut. I like them how they are. These jeans are awesome! The color is great for summer, the fabric is good quality, not like jeggins. I ordered them in my regular size 25 and they fit just right. I'm 5'4", 25.5 in waist, 36 in hips, pear-shaped (so my hips are big, but a bit lower my legs are much thinner). The knees are on the right place (which I can say by back wrinkles). They hit lower than on the model, but still good. The front hits an inch above the ankles and the back - just above. The style is very versatile. They look great with Tretorn Nylite sneakers and with heels as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jeans. These are my FAVORITE jeans - I have barely taken them off since I got them. I hate wearing skinny jeans in the summer and have been looking to branch out my denim wardrobe but at a petite 5'4" I haven't had much luck with mom jean or wide leg styles. I decide to try these and they are perfect! They are fitted through the hip and make your butt look amazing, and the magic pockets are - well - magic! The rise hits in the perfect place. This is a summer weight denim that is so soft and breathable. I wear between a 24 and a 25 at Madewell and I got these in a 24. Both sizes fit so I was waffling but decided to go with the 24s due to the high stretch content, and I'm glad I did. They have relaxed just a bit - just enough to make them fit like a glove - and I think if I had gone with the 25 I would be constantly yanking them up at the waist. So I would say go with the smallest size you can fit into knowing that after a few hours of wear they will give you a custom fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another hit! Love Madewell demin and the 9" high rise waist - it is super forgiving (no muffin top danger) and the demin has just the right amount of stretch. I wear these with flats, flip flops, stacked heels and they just look sharp and stylish. True to size, I got 30s as I wanted a bit more room, but could easily size these down to 29s and not be uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I cannot get enough of this cut of jean. once again, this cut is amazing... the wash is a soft blue (looks better in person!) and these have a bit of stretch to them. I did wind up sizing down in the pair I got because I could tell they'd stretch a bit and they have-- about 1 size but the stretch is more like... they fit even better than before? try them on-- if they feel a little snug, that's the right size! I'm not one way or another about the step hem... I just love this cut. MORE WASHES please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I am in total agreement with the review titled "LOVE" on this one: I wore these ALL night and experienced ZERO stretching. These hold you in, lift your bootie, and the wash and weight is perfect for summer. The stretch on these is fantastic, but it does not stretch out permanently - not even after washing. Love the color - and the uneven hem, too. Go with your usual size. If you are in between two sizes, then I would say size down to your lower range. As reference I am 5'9", 167 lbs with a very athletic build and the 29 fits like a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE Went into my local store just to take a look, saw these jeans, tried them on, and couldn't leave without them. I wore them that night to happy hour followed by a movie and they still fit like a glove--didn't experience the stretching out like the other reviewer. Took my usual size 25 and they are magical. I had to get them when I turned around in the dressing room and saw how they made my butt look. The style is super flattering; looks cute with a striped tee tucked in but would also look great with a cropped floral top. Love these jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slimming and stylish fit I bought these in a 31, they run true to size and are very flattering. I liked the fit so much I bought a second pair. They have just the right amount of stretch and look great with booties and sneakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these jeans! Typically I gravitate to skinny jeans. I saw these online and thought they looked really cute. Honestly didn't think that they were going to look good on my body...however when they arrived, I fell in love. I am petite (5'1) and a little hippy. I have issues finding jeans that fit/look nice. The fabric was so soft and has a nice amount of stretch to it, without stretching to the point where it starts to droop (I have had that happen in the knee area with certain brands). I liked the higher rise in the inseam as well. All around just a comfy, great fitting jean. I actually came back and purchased another pair in white. They can be dressed up or down (very cali-cool vibe) look great with sandals, sneakers and I look forward to trying them with booties once the fall comes. Thank you Madewell for making jeans that are actually made well! Since I am in love with these, I cannot wait to try some of your other fits/styles! I highly recommend these jeans
