Hi!  I'm Natalie. 

I am the owner of Bunny Bear Bandits, distributor of CRTARTU shoes in Canada, and a mom of two beautiful girls (3Y and 1Y).  I have a few passions in life being my family, fashion and shoes.  I love lots and lots of shoes!

When my older daughter approached the walking stage, I searched for lightweight, bendable and developmentally appropriate soles. More importantly, proper sizing with differences of less than half an inch between sizes.  I could not find these little shoes that fit perfectly.

A friend gave me a pair of CRTARTU (pronounced CATARTU) as a gift when my older daughter was 9 months old.  The shoes were cute and really well made.  They were easy to put on and take off, yet stayed on her feet. The sole was comfortable and stable for her first steps, and offered proper support for her age.  They fit her perfectly!

When I did some research, I found out that CRTARTU shoes are made by hand using environmentally friendly materials.   I searched everywhere to find this brand, but I had no luck.  So, I asked my friend to buy a few more pairs of these amazing shoes for me when she visited China again.  The shoes were once again a hit with my daughter, and she was able to get them on and off by herself before 2 years old. 

As a parent, I want only the best for my daughters.  I want to see them in quality, comfortable and stylish shoes that are healthy for their feet.  I truly believe in CRTARTU shoes, so I decided to bring these wonderful shoes to Canada. 

I hope you will have a look around, and that you and your little one(s) love CRTARTU shoes as much as us. 

Happy Shopping,
