The upcoming Octavius, from Dr Martens Autumn/Winter 2011 Sovereign line, was a clear highlight of last weeks Compass New York. Like the other Sovereign shoes – including a Penny Loafer and 8-Eye Boot – the Octavius is built on a sophisticated, tapered line. The contrast piping gives the burnished Tan leather upper more dimension and is in keeping with the smooth profile of the 4-eyelet shoe.

All shoes on the Sovereign line are Goodyear-welted and feature the original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole.

More looks after the jump.
