A lot of people enjoy being able to purchase a rather expensive wallet. Sometimes, it's all about the status symbol. Other times, it really doesn't have anything to do with status at all. People enjoy having something that is of high quality, something they know they can rely on. Most people actually prefer to carry the same wallet for a number of years, especially men.
Therefore, they want something that is going to be capable of standing up to both the test of time and all the punishment they can throw at it. That typically means that they will naturally expect to pay more for it, as you can't really expect to get several years worth of quality performance out of something you get out of the $10 or less bin.
With that being said, there are some wallets that are so expensive it will probably take your breath away. In fact, it might leave you wondering how on earth anything could possibly cost so much. Below is a list of the 10 most expensive wallets that you're likely to come across. Some of them are high-priced, yet within reason.
However, the ones that show up at the top of the list are so expensive that merely thinking about buying something like that will probably knock your socks off.
1. Biometric Wallet (Dunhill) - $825
Obviously, you have to like a wallet a lot if you're willing to pay a little over $800 for it. All things considered, this one does offer a lot of unique features that most wallets simply don't incorporate. For instance, you can link the wallet and your smartphone via Bluetooth technology.
The idea is that anytime your wallet gets more than a few feet away from the phone, an alarm goes off. This is a great idea if you have a tendency to lose your wallet from time to time or if you don't want someone picking your pocket while you're walking around in public.
The wallet also features RFID technology as well as a fingerprint sensor, giving you the capability of locking anyone out of it that you don't want rummaging through it.
2. Bottega Veneta Wallet (Wiberlux) - $556
This is another high-priced option. Although it's made from real leather, calf hide to be exact, and it has a slim design that allows you fit it in your pocket with ease, it doesn't have the same features as the one listed above. Make no mistake about it, it's extremely well constructed. For almost $600, it should be.
3. Zip Wallet (Saint Laurent) - $432
The thing that makes this wallet unique, aside from its high-quality, is that it has so much room for everything. It's a relatively small, slim design, yet there seems to be enough room inside to incorporate every card or any amount of cash that you could practically imagine.
If you tend to carry a lot of stuff with you, this is a good option because you won't be dealing with all of that bulk that is created with most wallets everywhere you go.
4. Paros Spiked Wallet (Christian Louboutin) $402
The thing that really sets this one apart is that it has an exceptionally unique design. Just as the name implies, the exterior has dozens of little spikes all over it.
5. Printed Logo Two-Tone Leather Wallet (Givenchy) - $320
This wallet really features elegance at its best. It incorporates a classic design that never seems to go out of style.
6. Dauphine Print Hammered Leather Wallet (Dolce & Gabbana) - $295
This one is similar to the one listed above. While they're not exactly the same, they are very much alike. The biggest difference is the slight decrease in price.
7. Woven Card Wallet (Fendi) - $245
Just as the name implies, this wallet features a woven design that is unlike just about anything else out there. It's also very well constructed from the highest quality materials. When all things are considered, this one seems to be a fairly reasonable price even though it's still more expensive than a lot of the wallets out there for sale.
8. Clutch Wallet (Comme Des Garcons) - $229
This one features premium quality along with a classic look, allowing it to represent the true epitome of style.
9. Leather Bi-Fold Wallet (Montblanc) - $212
A compact design that offers some of the best quality available, along with a minimalist design. Wallets similar to this one are extremely popular these days.
10. RFID Card Wallet (Harber London) - $70
The only wallet on the list that's priced under $100, and in fact, it's the only one that made the list that is less than $200. This wallet is made entirely by hand and provides room for just about every card you would ever need, despite its slim minimalist design.
