9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Frost

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Frost is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my jeans! I love these jeans! I've never had a problem with them ripping (and i have 7 pairs of Madewell jeans!) If you have big thighs (like me) with any jean that you continually wear you'll eventually develop rip in the inner thigh area because of the friction. Very happy with all of my Madewell jeans! Never going back to mid-rise!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Black Denim This is my third pair of essentially the same high waist black denim from Madewell - a new one yearly. I really like this year's version. It's slightly stretchier than years' past (the sales associate said there is a bit more elastane). It's also a tad bit longer, which I can appreciate. I am not tall (5' 5''), but some Madewell denim can seem somewhat cropped to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorates I love the fit and feel of these jeans. They have just enough stretch to make the high waist very comfortable. They achieve the comfort akin to wearing leggings, but are loose and structured in all the right places. I bought a pair of black high-rise jeans at Madewell about 4 years ago that had much less stretch, which made them pinch in the waist. It appears that Madewell has significantly improved the design and fabric. The extra stretch also makes them incredibly flattering. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Black Jeans Fit more like a jegging but they are awesome. 9" rise is perfect. No Muffin top and still shows my curves. I used to wear Gap jeans but the fit is boxy. I have already bought 2 more pairs at Madewell and I can't wait to re-build my denim collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Forest Heaven I love Madewell Jeans and while I will always be a 100% cotton fan these Jeans are also great. They are 93% cotton which is higher than other 9" high rise washes so they have less stretch. you can tell because they are a little stiffer but I'm excited with how they will wear. They are a little less black than the new ISKO Stay Black jeans but those are only 88% cotton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still looking good I've read the other reviews about these jeans breaking down really quickly, and while I've definitely had other Madewell jeans crumble too soon, this pair is still going strong. Maybe I got some kind of magically fortified pair? I ride my bike a lot so my Madewell jeans inevitably always rip in the crotch and inner thighs, but so far these are looking good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THEM! This is my second pair! I had to replace my old ones because I wore them too much (don't worry, they are good quality!) Super comfy, stretchy. I have nothing bad to say. I love, love, love these jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Love these jeans. They have a little stretch (so they're a little forgiving post-brunch), but don't feel like leggings. Love the high rise that's not too high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved these jeans! If I could live in these, I would. They are super comfortable but they look great as well. I am 5'4" and didn't have to shorten them, they were the perfect length.
