Oh, thank God. I was like, "Is that REALLY fashionable? REALLY?"

Thank you to one of my favorite fashionistas for clarifying that.
I didn't mean exactly like that. I was trying to illustrate a cuff where you just cuff it up once, not roll it over multiple times. That's the closest photo I could find on Google in a short time.

But maybe that's not fashionable either? I don't know.

Please make sure that you'll get them hemmed with the original edge still showing, I don't know how to explain this but you can really mess up a pair of jeans if you just cut the lowest rib (?) off and hem it.

I love the idea of cuffing. I have 4 AG jeans which are from the same designers. I have to wear 4" heels to wear them. I will try cuffing them for my lower heels or flats. Thanks for the idea!

Yes, I agree! It's called a euro hem -- the tailor will replace the original edge, so it won't even look like you had them hemmed.

Like others, I say get your jeans hemmed with the shoes you normally wear the most -- whether it's a heel or not.

Thanks for all the replies ladies! I think when I bring the jeans in to get hemmed, I'll bring the boots and have them pinned at that length, then try them on with some of my lower shoes to see how it works that way. But I probably will go with the longer length because, as mrspoppers said I think, I wear jeans more often in the fall/winter than in the summer.

Thank you for clarifying that! I really didn't know how to explain.
