No High Kai is not a karate move...but if it was I would learn it!
Much like the long John the High Kai is super tight and super stretchy. They feel like leggings so biking, walking and dancing are no problem no matter how tight you wear them.
What makes this jean so special is the rise is higher than the John. Some would call it a high rise, but mid rise would be more accurate. The best part is that even if you need to bend down to tie an awol shoe lace your bum stays inside your pants. No more bar stool nightmares, no more sudden cold drafts on the ol' kidneys, no more sharing your underwear with the world.
