Sharing a name with Amsterdam’s most infamous metro line, this drop embodies the hustle of metropolitan life and the struggle to make it big. While our hearts are in Amsterdam, our minds are in New York, which was once known to the world as New Amsterdam. It’s hard to believe that the most metropolitan city in the world started off as a humble Dutch trading post, but the influence is undeniable. For us, it’s been a journey from Amsterdam to New York, which thousands of our users call home. From one Amsterdam to another, we’re bringing the Metro 52 edition minimalist front pocket wallet to the Big Apple and beyond.
Metro 52 was a controversy going all the way back to 1968. The majority of the public saw this project as the potential downfall of Amsterdam. The weak soil and canal-heavy infrastructure were deemed completely unfit for any type of underground construction by experts. The term metro became almost taboo and plans to go through with it resulted in riots. Despite the undeniable resistance, Metro 52 was pushed into action thirty years later. The line took over twenty years to build, and today it connects the city from North to South. It’s a quintessential success story, encapsulating the struggle to evolve to the big-time.
Weaving streetwise urban appeal with classic luxury leather, the Metro 52 Edition showcases our most rugged minimalist front pocket wallets yet. Water-resistant. Dirt-proof. Rubbery feel for better grip, with the same quick card access that’s become our hallmark. In a world where every second counts, we’re making sure you have more of them, which is also why this collection includes our tracker cards. Our Worldwide Platform and Bluetooth tracking make the Ekster Metro 52 Edition the perfect choice for hectic urban life, making sure you’ll never lose your wallet (and if you do, someone in your network will find it).
Each wallet in the Metro 52 Edition is named after a place in New York. Each place is rooted in Dutch history. Just as New York was first New Amsterdam, the entire history of New York is intertwined with the Netherlands. Haarlem became Harlem. You might know Brooklyn as Breukelen. Greenwich was once Grenen Wijk. We’re paying homage to this historic link with a callback to these connections through the Metro 52 Edition: the perfect blend of class, urban outlook, and luxury streetwear.
I used to have a normal wallet but it started to get bulky. I saw this wallet and decided to give it a shot. To my surprise, it does it job very well. The quality is amazing.
This wallet is amazing. It’s exactly what I need in a wallet. It’s small and compact but also fits everything I need for the day. It feels expensive and luxurious but the cost is very affordable. I feel like an executive with this wallet.
I love it, best $100 dollars I've spent in a very very long time, it's compact, convenient, very useful, trackable, anti-theft, etc. If I had more money I'd buy more stuff, that's how good it is, 1,000% recommended.
I am an Ekster customer for over a year using the leather wallet until this recent purchase. This is by far the best wallet I have ever owned. The slim design and build quality. It feels amazing in hand and I feel this will hold up to the warehouse work that I am doing now.
I rant and rave about this wallet to anyone and everyone. It has changed my life for the better while looking stylish in the process. Long gone are the days of bulky wallets with years old gift cards….
Light, compact and very sleek, found my forever wallet!
This wallet is the best since I switched from a traditional wallet 2 years ago. Its great with the cards as well and it looks so cool when you take the cards out. Best wallet out there.
This is a great product! I’m glad it included a spare band with the wallet and I am now capable to keep more cash in my wallet. Overall the quality and functionality is supreme and can’t see myself using another product!
A very classy feel. Fits a lot but feels light and looks simple and very classy. The tracker card is an icing on the cake.
Good bye overstuffed, cluttered wallet! No more fumbling and searching for the needed card. Finally don’t mind carrying or using my wallet. Simple thing delivers joy everyday!
This wallet is one hell of an upgrade from that flimsy piece of leather I used to use! Ever time I pop the cards out in front of a clerk I get an awesome response! This would be an amazing present for a son, dad, grandpa, or husband!
Got the parliament wallet in black and I love it. The button to release the cards feel so smooth and satisfying. I find myself absentmindedly fidgeting with it in line all the time. Just pushing the button and pushing the cards back really fast and it never feels like its going to lose its functional integrity.
My 2nd 5 start review for a company who has taken over my EDC. I now use this indestructible wallet everyday while retaining all the benefits of my Ekster Senate -- which is now my "nice dinner" wallet.
Saw it featured in a YouTube video about someone’s edc, and was immediately drawn to it. I’m used to carrying around a small cardholder but I really like the ease of being able to pull out your cards (my previous one would sometimes stick to my cards) not to mention its rfid protected! Super sleek and minimal, I absolutely love it.
This item is incredibly low profile, which suits my minimalistic needs. The fact that the “wallet” is constructed in such a way that the money clip feature is removable is incredible. This way, you can have a sleek, minimalist look anytime. The quick draw of the cards is not compromised, noticing that it is smooth to place cards in and out of the holder as with other Ekster products. The aluminum finish is high quality and extremely durable. The most beneficial aspect to the material is that I no longer have to worry about water getting on leather! Ekster has innovated the wallet of the future, for any minimalist occasion.
