Austrian footwear label Dachstein sent some campaign images by photographer Wolfgang Lienbacher and product pictures of the Spring/Summer 2017 collection consisting of the 'Urban Outdoor' line, 'Approach' climbing shoe range, and 'Super Leggera' mountain boots. (Making of the campaign video).
Highlight of the 'Approach' climbing boots line are the 'Spürsinn EVO' sock-like men's and women's boots which were designed in collaboration with blind mountaineer Andy Holzer. The German word 'Spürsinn' means as much as the 'sense to feel' which is essential for climbers. For the grip, Dachstein used a Vibram sole which is equipped with additional special features at the front section and the heel; the sole is also developed in cooperation with Andy Holzer and is named 'EVO 2.0'.
