Normal Boots is a website that began the careers of Jon, alongside fellow YouTubers, Austin Hargrave (PBG), The Completionist, and Continue?.

History

Normal Boots began with JonTron and PBG as the first shows that were featured on the site.  The Completionist and Continue were added on at a later date.  Each video began with the logo advertising the site.  The videos were mainly uploaded to Youtube or Blip and then linked to the site.

More shows were later added to the website, like Indie Games Spotlight and Did You Know Gaming.

Closing

NB-0

Normal Boots was later closed due to Jon and the other members seeing how Youtube was a better way of being paid by posting their reviews.  The website was closed down with a picture of the Last Supper with Jon in place of Jesus and the other shows casts behind the disciples, with three of the disciples as angry fans saying "Can You Believe This Shit"[1]  The website is still available to view with links and by use of the wayback machine.

Reopening

On January 25, 2014, Jon, Austin, Jirard, and the Continue? crew relaunched the site with new art, a new logo and exclusive videos.  Their reasoning for relaunching the site is due to Youtube's copyright infringement.  New shows have been added to the website, such as ProJared and Satchbag.  A new format is used on the website to make it easier to use and features more pixel art than before.

Jon's Departure

Following his controversial statements in a January 27, 2017, Jon felt it would be in the best interest of everyone for him to step down from NormalBoots indefinitely. It is currently unknown if he will return to the platform. Most of his videos released after his departure accordingly lack the NormalBoots logo preceding them.

Shows

Throughout the website's lifespan and subsequent revival, the logo has changed.

First Logo (2010-2011)

The original logo for normal boots had thin red and blue pixel text reading "Normal" and "Boots" respectively, and a pair of pixel art brown boots between the words, all displayed on a white background.

Second Logo (2011-2012)

The second version of the logo was a minor update from the previous version. The background has been changed to a green one (the very same green that this wiki's previous colour scheme was based on!), the pixel letters were made more defined and the boots were made brighter and more detailed. This logo would be used all the way up to the shutdown of NormalBoots.

Third Logo (2014-Present)

The third, and to date, current version of the NormalBoots logo debuted with the revival of the NormalBoots website and for many, was first seen in Jon's Hercules Games video.. The logo is radically different from the previous two. It features a much simpler design for the boots, and the text has been relocated under the boots, made thicker, and changed to a uniform white colour. The green background has been given a softer tone as well.

A vector graphic version of this logo is also used from time to time.

Trivia

  • Caddicarus originally wished to be a part of Normal Boots, but the site closed down before he was accepted or if he was going to be accepted.  He has however done a crossover with The Completionist, someone who supported the site.
  • Indie Games Spotlight is the only show that has not returned to Normal Boots since its revival.
