Normal Boots began with JonTron and PeanutButterGamer. While they were making content on ScrewAttack, they decided to go out on their own to create a website for video game video creators. They asked for other people to join them, and ended up with The Completionist and Continue?. The site began in 2010.
In 2012, the site was closed down due to the creators making more money from simply using YouTube rather than NormalBoots. The team all still hung out together, and made videos together, but the Normal Boots name was temporarily on hiatus.
On January 25th 2014, the site reopened with all the original crew. The site looked different, and all the creators made a new video to put out on the same day exclusive to Normal Boots. This reboot happened due to YouTube flagging copyright infringements on everyone's videos, and the Normal Boots team wanted somewhere to put videos that they couldn't put on their channels.
