The Walk at JBR has plenty of activities going on as part of the Dubai Shopping Festival.

The other evening we came across a group performing their traditional dances, dressed in their traditional clothing.

Puma Sneakers?
Agree with Anonymous: They would want to rest their feet since they have to perform the whole day.

There was a time when they had to kill the puma first, and then make the shoes from its skin!
