Product Details
Lean and sexy, this one's legs-for-days look comes from using best-of-the-best denim. The 9" 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). Bonus: These jeans were specially dyed to stay dark for longer than ever.

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in ISKO Stay Black™

9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in ISKO Stay Black™ is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Having this been my first pair of Madewell jeans, I was worried the size or fit wouldn't be right for my body. I ordered my go-to size (25 in most stores) and these fit like a glove. Love them! Must keep far away from my white cat. These were pretty expensive for me being in CAD, but I think it was worth the splurge. I hope they become a long-term staple in my wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Finally a black jean that seems built to last in material and color. The magic pockets really are magic on my thin but apple shaped bod. I took my usual madewell size 27 in these and the length is perfect for my 5'4" height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True black jean! I needed a pair of black pants for work, and I work somewhere casual so I thought these would be a good fit. I haven't washed them yet, but they really are a true black jean and they have the magical reinforced pockets that I love! My only complaint is that they're a bit long. I'm 5'2", 106" and bought a size 24 - my normal Madewell size. They're a bit snug but a size up would make them baggier in the knees/ankles, so I have a feeling they'll break in perfectly. I just wish Madewell would make cropped/petite sizes! The biggest bummer was the smell of the jeans. They don't smell the best. I'm sure that'll change with the first wash, but it was just a little unpleasant when I opened the package/wore them for the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO GOOD Just got these the other day. It's true - they stay black!! I washed them inside out w/clear detergent & laid flat to dry, no issues. Great work Madewell! I will say, I did notice they attract lint a little more than other jeans/clothes I wear, but it's totally worth it, and I carry a mini lint roller with me everywhere anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic. Pockets. (Mic Drop) I cannot say enough about Magic Pockets! As a devoted shapewear user I couldn't imagine leaving the house without it until I came across these little miracles. Holds you in in all the right places and retains its shape. I bought the 9" in the stay black and white, and the white Calis. The stay black does have an odor as another reviewer pointed out, but honestly it just smells like vinegar and any denim aficionado knows to soak your dark denim in white vinegar to set the dye...the stay black has probably just done this process for me. True to size, but I promise you will look a size or two smaller in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the jean I was looking for I'm obsessed with these jeans. They make me feel confident and sexy. The color is great. The material is breathable. I could wear them all day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT - so far! I have not had the pleasure of wearing them yet (only tried on) but i CANNOT wait to wear these this fall! I needed a new pair of black jeans and i have fallen in love with the 9" madewell skinnies style. I am short (112 lbs / 5'1") so i have always been hesitant to wear high rise because it swallows my short torso, but these are the perfect rise for petites! I have practically been changing over my whole denim wardrobe to this style since i found them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jean - horrible with lint These fit just a little bit more snug than the other washes of this style, but after a few wears, they fit perfectly! The color looks great and helps me get away with wearing jeans to work! My only complaint is the way these pick up lint. I find myself taking 10 minutes before I put them on to do a complete rundown with a lint roller - and then again multiple times throughout the day. If you have pets, unless you really love to lint roll, these might not be the ones for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit stiff I ordered these to replace my other black Madewell skinnies that became tie dyed after 2 washes! These definitely seem like they will stay black and I am happy to read reviews saying that they do. The cons so far, though, are that they don't seem to fit like my other Madewell jeans! They are rather stiff which make them feel like they are smaller than they actually are. Not sure if anyone has this problem. I haven't washed mine yet, and am afraid to in case I need to return them!
