Wow, This is The Most Minimalistic iPhone Case-Wallet Combo We’ve Seen

quirky-crossover-3

Boy, things are really heating up in the minimalist heck-with-all-this-crap-I-only-want-to-carry-one-thing space. Earlier this week, Distil Union unveiled Wally, basically a strip of leather that clings tenaciously to the back of your iPhone, with a small cavity you can fill with cards or cash.

But the $35 Crossover, created over at crowdsource-design site Quirky, looks like it might be even more minimalist than Wally — it’s just two silicone straps that grip the edges of your iPhone. And it comes in all kinds of colors to boot.

The Crossover’s silicone straps are stretchy, so you can strap stuff to the back of your phone. The straps also perform guard duty, since they cover all four corners and form a cross over (see where they got the name?) the back. Unlike Wally though, the Crossover is iPhone 5-only.

As a bonus, you can custom-color your Crossover by ordering the straps in different colors. Wally or Crossover? I’m torn.
