Will Smith had his fans in a frenzy on Friday with a walk down memory lane.

The Fresh Prince star raised questions when he posted a magazine cover from many years ago.

In the image for Essence's photoshoot, Will was dressed all in white, wearing a pinstripe suit, and shirt.

He was standing poolside with his pants rolled up and wore no shoes or socks.

Will captioned the post: "Quick question - where my damn shoes at??"

His fans immediately began commenting on his "big" and "perfect" feet with many saying his lack of footwear was perfect for the photo.

Others couldn't get over his appearance and said he looked like it was his "Miami-era".

Many more were finding the headlines for the articles in the 1997 publication amusing especially the one that read: "Doing it to death. A sex addict speaks."

Will didn't reveal why he was sharing the magazine cover but his fans were thrilled that he did as they enjoyed a giggle at his expense.
