As a disclaimer, I am hard on my jeans. I expect them to be both stylish and sturdy, and I expect to be able to buy the same style and size from a manufacturer without needing to deal with any variation beyond color. That said, I bought two pairs of 515s in different colors. The Star Sapphire jeans are exactly what I want in denim, flattering, comfortable, and sturdy without being too pedestrian. If I could only wear one pair of jeans for the rest of my life, it would be these jeans. Where the Star Sapphires are unadorned and sensible, exactly what you would expect from old-school Levis, the Lights Out color suffer from ugly top stitching and coppery sequins glued on the butt pockets, neither of which are adequately conveyed by Zappos' photos. The dinky rivets and limp, spongy denim aren't exactly highlights, either. They don't even fit the same, sagging off the backs of my thighs where my preferred pair nip neatly in. I'm not sure how Levis failed so badly with these where they succeeded with the Star Sapphires. Final verdict, I would give the Star Sapphires a 5 and the Lights Out a 2 if I could. There is significant variation between colors here, despite the fact that they fall under one umbrella description.

I am so mad at these jeans. I bought them maybe a month ago and through normal laundering they've shrunk at least an inch in length so now they're too short. They fit perfectly for about 5 minutes and then stretch and sag so that within an hour I'm hiking them up and have room for a friend to share the butt with me. You'd think after a billion years of making jeans, Levis would have a decent fabric by now.

The length of these jeans were too long and they were the skinny jeans, which I don't care for. I like the loose fit more comfortable Levi's I use to be able to purchase

Levi's quality control has just gone out the window. The fabric is thin, the pockets are shallow and the fit is awful on this jean. Bought 3 pairs with slightly different washes...all fabrics were thin and pockets shallow. Two pair fit just fine. The third fit was just off. The bad fit was manufactured in Egypt and the other two were manufactured in Mexico. The same style jeans I purchased a couple of years ago had the same problems with fabric and pocket depth and were made in China. Would that Levi's were still made in the USA with the past quality. Maybe I'll try a men's Levi and see if they are better. Still love the Levi's style.

I kept them, but only because I really needed a inexpensive jean for work. I have bought the 515 for years and every time I do they get cheaper and cheaper in the construction and this time they have a stench about them I cannot get rid of and I've washed them twice now! It will be the last time I buy these.

The color is beautiful and the cut is great. It runs a little larger than size so I would recommend ordering one size down. Also, this tall is for genuinely tall women (5'9" +). Very comfortable but I miss the stiffness and durability of all-cotton denim jeans and wish Levi's would return to that! Zappos' service, as always, was second to none!

I wear 515's exclusively. Boot cut fits all my motorcycle boots and goes with other foot wear also. Just didn't like the Levi V being partially done in metal. When the pockets start to wear, I will have to pull the metal to keep it from scratching my leather bike and car seats. Levis - just stick with thread please!

I purchased these to replace same style I bought 6 or so years ago. They were a favorite go to casual jean. It will take some wearing in of this new pair to get that comfy soft feeling, but the fit is the same, as is quality. These Levis are just classic.

I had previously purchased a pair of these at Kohl's but have lost weight and wanted another pair in my new size. I really liked the fit on the bigger pair but when these arrived they were weird. The waist was high (above my belly button) and tight and the legs were really loose. Too bad but these are going back.

Really like these jeans. The quality of Zappos items makes shopping at Zappos a plus. And returning an item is a breeze. Zappos makes shopping with them easy and the quality of their merchandise is the best.

I've worn Levis 515 jeans for quite a while and just love then, but these didn't stack up quite as well. I order mine online because I am 5 feet tall and need the short version. I lost 15 pounds and needed to go down a size, so I ordered the vintage frost with steel stitch. They just are not as comfortable. They don't have the give when I bend over and pick up something off the floor. They also came with an unattractive flaw on the leg. I wish I'd sent them back before wearing them.

I tried on literally 38 pairs of jeans, mostly Levis, to find these. The waist is not gappy and the legs taper flatteringly. Good quality denim and deep pockets.

Love it. Have another pair that has too big of hole to wear out. Fits comfortably - some stretch in the fabric. I got the short so that I don't need to roll up the pant legs.

The perfect jeans for me arrived one (1) day after I placed my order, at no additional cost. Amazing.

I have been wearing this style of Levi's jeans for years now. They aren't cut super-low in the waist, but they aren't old lady jeans, either. They are also very comfortable. They do stretch out a little after you wear them awhile. Zappos' price is competitive with other Websites that carry this same jean, but with Zappos, you get the awesome VIP free overnight shipping and customer service. A note of caution, though. It has been my experience that Zappos won't accept returns on clothing when the package has been opened and worn or washed, even if the item is defective. So the return policy is not as good as with Zappos' shoes. Overall, though, this is a good choice for someone who wants a basic bootcut jean. Levi's never go out of style!

I like the fit of these jeans, and they are wearing well through multiple washes, not shrinking. Boot leg does lengthen the look of the leg. Paired with a tailored white shirt, they are my favorite classic casual outfit. Waistband could be a bit smaller in back to make them perfect for me.

They fit very funny on me. Crotch seam way too low; waist OK at start of day and then pants are falling off me after a couple hours of wear!
