Australian brands Barney Cools and Platypus Shoes have teamed up to launch Barney Cools' first range of sneakers exclusively through the footwear retailer.

The new sneaker collection from the apparel brand reflects its laid-back, summer style and comes in both low-cut and hi-top styles, with the Barney Cools website calling the collection: Poolside Sneakers. 

Key features of the line include extra sole thickness, lightly waxed laces and a cotton canvas outer. 

The range will also be complemented by a selection of especially designed Barney Cools accessories including a hat, socks and a side bag. The accessories will also be exclusively sold at Platypus. 

Platypus head of marketing Tia Paterson said Platypus is thrilled to bring Barney Cools' first sneaker collection to consumers. 

"We’re so excited to bring Barney Cools’ first footwear range exclusively to Platypus Shoes customers.

"There is a natural synergy between our two brands, and we are confident this will be the first of many Barney Cools collections," she said. 

The Barney Cools sneaker collection comes in a range of colours: White, Black, Summer Yellow, Seagrass, Pink and Indigo, and will retail for $99 a pair in select Platypus Shoes across Australia.
