Made in 1969 to fit over boots, the 517 ? Bootcut Jeans have been tried and true for generations. Cut to sit below the waist, slim from hip to thigh with an authentic bootcut leg. They`re durable, comfortable, and have always looked good. This pair comes in a medium stonewash. Stonewashing is accomplished by washing denim with pumice stones to achieve a lived-in look and feel. This step occurs during the finishing process.
