Salma Hayek has just mastered the art of dancing in big sneakers.

The actress just showed off her superstar moves on Instagram. In a new video released today, Hayek performed “… Baby One More Time” by dance queen Britney Spears, alongside her makeup and hair team. The clip was part of a new line dancing challenge for his upcoming movie “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard”, a sequel to “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” from 2017.

Hayek’s outfit for the occasion was casual and simple; she opted for a soft black V-neck top and pajama bottoms, accessorized with gold hoops. However, his shoes made a major statement – Hayek did a karate kick and a fatal fall as part of Balenciaga’s Triple S sneaker routine. Although Hayek’s pair are currently out of stock, similar pairs are selling for $ 1,150 on Bloomingdales.com.

The popular sneaker’s Hayek colourway features a gray mesh upper with exaggerated beige, blue, black and white rubber soles, complemented by purple and yellow suede details. Originally launched in September 2017, the overly chunky sneaker instantly sold out and remained a staple in Balenciaga collections for years. The Triple S’s layered sole has made it a comfortable favorite of other A-List celebrities, including Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, and Tracee Ellis Ross.

The look has changed dramatically for Hayek, who typically wears high fashion outfits in a range of prints, textures and colors. The actress most often wears the maximalist dresses, suits, blouses and skirts of Gucci, as the face of designer Alessandro Michele. However, it does make sense. Comfort is on the rise, and it seems impossible for anyone to do a karate dance step in a romantic tailored dress – although, if anyone could, it would be Hayek.

Hayek’s sneaker choice was also a new style development, as she is rarely seen in casual shoes. While paparazzi photos have occasionally shown her in Gucci’s chunky leather sneakers, the “Frida” star almost always wears heels. Her favorites are the 6-inch strappy platform or point-toe pumps from the Italian house, although she has also been spotted in glittery sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti or Saint Laurent.
