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

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.
