Hemming Rockers outcome?

I did a quick search and didn't see anything on the topic, so I'm sorry if this has already been covered a million times.

I love the idea of the rocker cut. However, I need a shorter inseam (30 or 31ish) and was wondering if anyone anyone has done it or if going that short would defeat the purpose of the cut. Does anyone have any experience they'd like to share?

Thanks in advance for any and all input!

I have had mine hemmed to 31/32 and the fit was the same for me, i did it with the older rockers styles not the new ones hope this helps.

I have had mine hemmed to about 31.5" and you can't tell. I would guess it would depend on the wash, but I can't think of any in particular that would be affected.

yeah, as others have said, no problem at all, you will loose a bit of the flare but there should still be plenty rockers =

Hi! I've had Soho and VSP rockers hemmed up to 30.5"/31" (w/ heels for me). The slim flare remains in both cases.

Thanks Maureen!

Soho and VSp are the two washes I think are prettiest so that is great news. Thank you!!

I've done mine to 30-31" numerous times. I think it makes them fit a bit more like a slim bootcut than a slim flare, but the overall effect is pretty much the same. Definitely shouldn't be an issue IMO unless you're taking 6+" off, then you might have more of just a straight left.
