Created by the talented designer, Christoph Döttelmayer, the Mammut Eismeer DL is the first signature shoe in the outdoor sports industry. Created for David Lama, the young and successful climbing professional from Austria.
The design process was about transforming his personality and passion for climbing into a product. To help him perform at the highest level and to give him the edge in mountain sports equipment. With new methods in production, the shoe is cut and tailored to his exact specifications, making it the lightest, warmest and most versatile alpine climbing boot.
100% handmade in Austria.
I personally love the asymmetric closure of the outer bootie, the use of materials and just the dynamic of essentially having two shoes in one. Christoph’s done a brilliant job of displaying an in-depth breakdown of the entire design and development process behind his Diploma project. From initial sketches, through to rapid prototypes, creating a custom last and final samples, check out Christoph’s project, below.
