I got the Herring Reading back in late 2011. It's become part of a rotation of around 12 pairs so they're only worn maybe once a week or two. They've survived a few nights on the beer well enough and we get our fair share of rain and crappy weather over here.
I think I paid £100 for them and I'm plenty happy with the quality at that price and how they've held up after 3.5 years or somewhat regular wear. They were my first pair of proper suede shoes too for what it's worth!
