DFW boot man launches business

Greater Fort Worth resident and longtime business leader Randy Watson has officially launched his new boot company, R. Watson Boots.

“I’m building boots that I will wear everyday and years later my grandchildren will put those timeless pieces of art in their closet and be proud to wear them,” Watson said in a news release.

The news release said Watson has 40-plus years of success in building some of the largest boot brands in the industry.

Both western and work boots under the R. Watson Boots brand will hit store shelves in time for this holiday season.

Planned are 30 designs for men’s western boots – featuring exotics and traditional leathers – and 14 work boot designs.

The news release said R. Watson Boots will be offered at retailers including Cavenders, Burleson’s CB Finchers, Teskey’s Saddle shop, National Roper Supply, Justin Discount Boots, Wood’s Boots, Lee’s WW, Dennard’s, French’s in Tennessee, Vanderbilt’s in Kansas, Tener’s Western Outfitter’s in Oklahoma, Langston’s WW in Oklahoma, Dilley F&G, and Boots Etc. in Georgia.

“Cavenders is always searching for authentic, quality products when it comes to boots. Randy’s knowledge and passion for building a better boot makes this a great partnership for us,” Joe Cavender, president of Cavenders, said in the news release.
