An Essential Cool Wallet Buying Guide

Traditional, standard looking wallets may always be around—but that doesn’t mean you have to use one! In the past few years, there has been a growing trend of “cool wallets,” or wallets that don’t look like your standard black or dark brown leather businessman wallet that most people grew up buying and seeing the people around them use. Cool wallets are here to stay, and with their growing popularity seeing no end in sight, it’s definitely time to take a look at the many cool options you have when looking for a new wallet. The following is an essential, handy cool wallet buying guide for all of your wallet shopping needs.

What is a “cool wallet”?

There’s no strict definition for cool wallets, but most people and businesses will label wallets ‘cool’ if they don’t fit into the standard traditional box of “plain, solid-colored wallet usually made out of leather or similar synthetic materials.” Cool wallets can be just about anything! They can be a standard-design wallet with a unique pattern or picture, such as checkerboards or a picture from a cartoon or movie; they can be shaped like something else, such as a book, piece of toast, game system controller, or cassette tape; they can include unique features like raised decorations, passcodes, or key locks; and so much more. The sky is really the limit with these types of wallets!

How much should I pay for one?

The price of cooler wallets, like any wallet, will depend on a number of factors. The most significant factors are the material, style, and the brand that makes the wallet. More expensive materials will naturally cause the wallet to be more expensive; more detailed and intricate styles, such as a wallet designed to look like a game controller, can make the wallet more expensive as well. Designer brands or otherwise expensive brands will have higher prices than smaller brands.

How much you want to pay for your wallet depends on your personal budget and what kind of wallet you are looking to buy.  It’s up to you to determine what an acceptable budget is for your next wallet, so take the time to consider how much you are willing to pay—and what you want—before you start shopping.

What can I fit inside a cool wallet?

There is no standard size or criteria for what a cool wallet can hold, so how much you will be able to fit inside your new wallet will depend on how big the wallet is as well as the interior structure of the wallet. If you are worried that you won’t be able to fit everything inside, you should take a look inside the wallet at the store; if you are shopping online, see if the website offers interior views or if you can find reviews where people talk about the interior size of the wallet and how much they were able to fit inside. If neither of these things are possible, you could always purchase the wallet from a store with a return policy that would allow you to return it if the inside is not big enough.
