Product Details

With our extra-high 10" 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 Donovan Wash

Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Donovan Wash is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Vintage Look Just bought my second pair of these, and I am so in love. They give off a 60s-70s vibe with the high-rise waist and slight crop. The little details make this pair of jeans so unique, and I always get compliments on them. I do wish the crop was a bit more exaggerated (then again, I am very short so it may just be me). I'm 5'3 and 94 lbs and got a size 24 both times and they fit great. I've had one pair for 6 months now and I'm not exaggerating when I say I have worn them EVERY DAY since then. They are so comfortable, and the wash and fit just get better with wear - I wear my old ones more than the new pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans! But some things to know... Some things to know about these jeans: (1) they aren't really cropped unless you're tall, I'm 5'4 and these hit at the ankle. The sales associate told me she cut the hem off and it looks a lot better so I might do the same (2) they aren't flared so if you're looking for a crop kick flare, these aren't it, but this demi boot is a good transition if you are interested but aren't sure if that style will flatter you (3) these run a bit small, but I bought them in my regular size 26 and even though they were really tight initially they've stretched out after a couple wears (4) I got these on sale in store so drop by a store to see With that being said, the quality of the denim is AWESOME and this is coming from someone who struggles to find jeans they like, thankfully Madewell makes my life easier. I'm obsessed with the 10" rise styles (Madewell please make more!!); the denim is thick and these suck you in without suffocating your legs. Highly recommend as an alternative to skinnies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jeans! I received these in the mail this morning and have yet to take them off as the day rolls to an end. I love them!! They are so cute, they make my butt look great, and they are the perfect length for my 5'3" frame. The only downside is that the waist has stretched out a bit so there is a gap, but I would not be able to size down, my runner thighs would never fit! For reference, I ordered a 27 and am 115-120 lbs depending on the day :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, the Perfect Kick-Flare High rise kick flares are where it's at. I sold all my awful skinny jeans as a result of this one pair of Cali demi-boot jeans. Like another reviewer, I wear them everyday and hope for more colors as they inevitably rise in popularity. I am between an 8 and a 10 in jeans, 5'4". The 29 fits like a glove. Yes, when I first put them on, I can hardly breathe, but they stretch ever so slightly after one full-day wear to conform to my body. I washed but didn't dry them, and the hem length shrunk up about 1/2 inch to THE PERFECT length for me. Every kick-flare I've tried on has looked like a mom-capri, and, to my delight, these do not. In the donovan wash, they're a tough American take on a French classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes your bum look awesome I definitely had to size up one size from my normal jeans, and they're still tight (this type of high-waisted jean almost needs to be to fit right), but they look GREAT. Super-flattering in the rear. I'm short (5'2") and don't mind a frayed hem, so I took my shears to the bottoms. Such cute jeans, and wonderfully made. If you want more comfort or depending on your waist/hip ratio, you may want to go up two sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite pair of jeans!!! Thank you Madewell for these jeans! The high waist is just right, the length and slight flair is perfection! I could not love these jeans more and never want to take them off! Please, please keep this style around and make it in more washes! It's the best alternative to the skinny jean and has a fab vintage look with the high waist. Love, love, love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me! I bought these in Kane and I just LOVE them!!! They fit me very well and run true-to-size for me at least. I wear 25 and they are great. I receive compliments every time I wear them as well. I wear them with either flats or sock boots and it's such a cute look! I feel like a rock star when I wear them!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won me over! I'm the last person that would ever buy a kick-flare, slightly cropped jean, but I decided to give these a chance and I'm so glad I did. The flare isn't too obnoxious and looks great when I wear flats or sneakers (have yet to decide how to wear this in the cooler months - boots?). I will say the wash is a LOT more blue in person, not as faded as the picture suggests. Nonetheless, I love the color and style. I originally sized up according to customer reviews on the other pair of Cali jeans but eventually returned them for my normal 26, and they fit much better. My pair does have slight distressing along the hem and the rim of the jean pockets, but I like it that way. Anyway, really love these jeans and if they do make a pair in a more distressed, grey-blue color I would buy it in a heartbeat.
