In this paper, we prove the existence of a nontrivial solution for the following boundary value problem
 $\left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}{l}}{ - {\rm{div}}(\omega (x)|\nabla u(x){|^{N - 2}}\nabla u(x)) = f(x,u),\;\;\quad }&{\;\;\;\;\;{\rm{in}}\;B;}\\{u = 0,\;\;\quad }&{\;\;\;\;\;{\rm{on}}\;\partial B,}\end{array}} \right.{\rm{ }}\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\left( 1 \right)$
where
 $B$
is the unit ball in
 $\mathbb{R}^N$
,
 $N\geq 2$
 $\omega(x)$
is of logarithmic type, the function
 $f(x,u)$
is continuous in
 $B\times\mathbb{R}$
and has critical double exponential growth, which behaves like
 $\exp\{e^{\alpha |u|^{\frac{N}{N-1}}}\}$
as
 $|u|\to\infty$
for some
 $\alpha>0$
.
