If you’re the type of person that doesn’t like to move around the city while carrying a bulky wallet in your pockets, then you should definitely take a look at the Ekster Metro 52 Edition Wallet.
The Ekster Metro 52 Limited Edition Wallet shares a name with Amsterdam’s most infamous metro line. Let’s take a moment to remember its story (the metro line).
The main Story (Amsterdam – New Amsterdam )
“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.”
What was Metro 52?
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.
Now, let’s take a detailed look at the Ekster Metro 52 Edition Wallet.
