Buoy Boots is a family owned and operated company. Founder, Jonathan Watts, and wife, Julia, were born and raised in Elizabeth City, North Carolina on the Pasquotank River and close to the Outer Banks.

Our boots were inspired by our son, Barron, when he was four years old. Like most children in eastern North Carolina, Barron was always outside and in the water. At the time, the only boot option for a four year old was a very tall, uncomfortable rain boot. After much research, we decided to create and produce a high quality, comfortable, slip-on ankle boot that appealed to all children.

After success with children’s boots, we decided to add adults boots. Now, we can enjoy the same comfort and durability our children love. We stand by our product and we know you will love yours will too!
