In an Instagram video, Williams let her followers in on a little secret: Instead of uncomfortable stilettos, the super athlete chooses sneakers.

You can see her lift up her skirt and show off her black kicks while walking to a transportation bus to take the couple to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s reception.

“Little known fact,” she captioned the clip. “I often wear sneakers under my evening gown.”

We saw a similar style, with cutouts, on the Valentino website for a cool $705. Oh, they’re on sale, by the way.
