Review: Personalized Leather iPhone Cases from Michael Louis

When the folks at Michael Louis sent me a Personalized Embossed Leather Cases ($74) to review I thought I was getting special treatment. A leather case with my initials stamped in silver on the back? Pretty cool. Then I realized they offer free personalization to everyone, when ordering online! You can specify up to six characters and even choose emojis and the color. This is a nice touch and will certainly set your phone apart in a crowd.


If that's not enough, their cases are available in a wide assortment of embossed and textured surfaces and colors like blue and gold. Despite the attention to fashion, they offer solid protection including coverage at the bottom, where the ports are. Many cases skimp in that area. Despite the added texture, they are compatible with Qi wireless charging. My only complaint is how hard it is to choose which case to get, given all of the textures, colors, and personalization options.


Michael Louis also offers wallets, bracelets, key rings, handbags, and cases for AirPods, so if you're having trouble choosing one design, you can have a different choice for different gadgets. Or have everything match!
