Love these jeans! Glad I ignored the bad review! I usually wear low rise jeans so im used to the 2 inch zippers! They are low rise! They are on the long side (which I prefer) because I always where a shoe with some sort of heel. My favorite part is the pockets on the back side. They sit really low and give your backside a little lift. I love them and would have paid the regual retail of $120 if I had too! But thanks to overstock I saved $$$$! These jeans have lots of little details and are very well made!
