Product Details
Our favorite lean and sexy style in best-of-the-best denim. The sky-high 10" rise has a supersleek effect, thanks to a tricky new 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). Go ahead and tuck in your shirt—you've got nothing to hide in these jeans.

10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Hayes Wash

10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Hayes Wash is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from seriously magical On the quality: These are a heavier denim for how stretchy/curve-friendly they are. I love that they pull on almost like leggings but then feel substantial and protective. All the major seams are reinforced. Fit: I'm not sure how they figured it out but these slip around my weightlifter's thighs but yet aren't gapping like crazy at my waist, nor are they slipping down. The high-waist comes above my belly button but isn't so rigid to feel constricting. Pocket placement is awesome and having the front pockets sewn flat also works to prevent that weird pocket-bunch that can happen right at the hip crease. They hit right at my ankle bone for length, which is going to make them super versatile. So glad I went with it. Size down if you're between.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Pants Remember The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants? Yeah, I'm pretty sure those were THESE pants! They look good on EVERYONE and make me feel like a magnificent denim goddess! I have three pairs of these pants. I need more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Pockets Are On To Something I desperately needed to swap out my old dark-wash skinnies (they had stretched beyond what any dryer could repair and were constantly falling down and bagging at the knees) and bought these after reading the stellar reviews. These pockets really ARE on to something. I've been a bit self-concious about some recent weight gain and felt an instant boost of confidence after seeing how these flattened my stomach. Not to mention, my legs looked firmer, too. For reference, I'm 5'4" (the length was almost perfect), ~165lbs, and bought a 29. They slide on snug to really hold you in, but aren't too tight (and that's coming from someone who HATES uncomfortable jeans). This was my first pair of Madewell jeans, and honestly, I'm going to have a hard time buying anything else. My only suggestion? Make an ankle-length, raw-hem pair in 10" too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans!! These are great jeans! They are incredibly flattering to my “mom tummy” and I sized down which was, I admit, a boost to my confidence! I’m between a 26 and 27 and the 26 fits great and is even slightly big. I like that these are not skin tight skinny jeans but more polished looking. I can tuck tops in without feeling pudgy. For reference, I am 127 lbs, five foot three and the 26 was fabulous. I might have been able to get away with a 25, but I was worried they’d be too snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect basic skinnies These are the jeans I've been looking for. In general, I love fit and cut of Madewell's 10" skinnies: They fit true to size, they're slim but not skin-tight, they hit right at my belly button, and they don't gap at the waist like many high-rise pants tend to do for me. The material is what really makes them, though. It's like a cross between everything you want from a 100% cotton jean AND a skinny jean. The stretch makes them comfortable and flattering. But the weight is heavy enough so these still feel like JEANS, not leggings. And they don't seem to bag out, even after you wear them for a while. The wash is great too--simple and dark, without any weird faux distressing. There's a tiny amount of whiskering on the thighs, but it looks authentic, not cheap or unflattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I have another pair of madewell denim that I really liked the fit of and already knew my sizing. So I ordered these in hopes of looking for my perfect pair of high waisted denim. THESE ARE IT! I'm absolutely obsessed with these. They're perfectly stretchy on but don't bag up like most jeans. And they're as flattering as ever. GET THESE! For reference: I'm around 5'7-5'8 and 120 lbs. Long legs so I opted for the Long. They're still a tad above how they fit on the model but they're amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy Got these jeans after all the glowing reviews. They definitely have some stretch but don't stretch out too much. I got the 28 and they are great. Usually wear a 27 in AG and 27/28 in Jbrand. They are my first pair of madewell so I can't compare to other styles. Will definitely be purchasing other styles as I love these. First pair of high rise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made-ridiculously-Well Had been wanting to buy Madewell jeans for sometime since my friends are obsessed, but couldn't quite find the right rise that I liked. I thought the 10" might be too high but to my pleasant surprise, it fit like a glove and I ended up liking it a lot. Bought these in store and the sales lady was super helpful and encouraged me to try them on. I was hesitant at first because I didn't like the 9" and going to a higher rise seemed counter-intuitive, but let me tell you...those re-inforced pockets are miracle workers! Thank you Madewell for these perfect jeans, but please please make more of these in different colors/washes. Buy them now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hit the nail on the head I ordered these jeans after returning a pair of 9" high-rise skinnies in a different wash that stretched out in the knees and butt really quickly. Customer service was super helpful in offering me a free return and suggesting I try this pair instead. I could not be happier...these jeans fit like a glove and the denim is high-quality and holds its shape much better than the first pair I had ordered. The Hayes wash is a beautiful rich color and the length is perfect for me (I was worried they'd be super long...I am short but I like to roll a small cuff at the bottom, so I don't mind an inch or two of extra length). I ordered the 25R and I am 110lbs and 5'1". I am petite but I just had a baby 8 months ago and these pants hold me in and make me feel sleek and put together but are comfortable at the same time thanks to their stretch. Pricey but worth it in my mind. I would love a flair/wide-leg version of the very same jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Jeans. Ever. These are the perfect everything jeans. The fit is ridiculously flattering. I was initially afraid that it wouldn't be as slim on the ankle as I like my jeans to be and was hesitant to buy them, but my husband got them for me and I'm never turning back. I want every color.
