Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been fortunate enough to climb all over the U.S. and I have yet to run into anything the Oasi can't handle. From sharp crimpers on great edges up in the NW, to sloper madness and extend-o leg heel hooks out at HP 40, I have yet to run into a scenario where I wanted a different pair of shoes on.
A couple of key points:
- The heel is amazing. It sucks in and keeps you in place. While most asymetric shoes will do that, this one has the fore thought to actually have good rubber back there. The sole rubber continues and wraps around the heel, giving you good bite when you drive in and pull on those hammies.
- The fit is SUPER comfy. I generally don't have to take off my shoes during a climb session. Now, before everyone yells at me about fit, I climb V7 outside and have the pics to prove it. It's a super comfy shoe.
