It's no secret that Kanye West's Yeezy Boost sneakers are a hot item—and no one knows the better than Jesse Tyler Ferguson

The Modern Family star stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, where he dished on husband's Justin Mikita's 30th birthday, as well as the couple's two-year wedding anniversary, recalling the great lengths he went to in order to nab his hubby the perfect present. 

"I had this overwhelming—I wouldn't call it a burden—but I didn't know what to get him for his 30th birthday. He has enough, you know?" he said before joking, "I mean look at me? He has this."

"He really wanted these Yeezy sneakers. Kanye West's sneakers—they're impossible to find," the 39-year-old actor continued. "So I happen to know one of the girls who's on the Kardashian glam squad. Her name's Jen Atkin, she does all the hair for the Kardashians." 

Naturally, Ferguson thought he could use his Hollywood connections to snag a pair of sneakers, but it was still much harder than he expected. 

"So my friend Jen was literally on the phone with Kim Kardashian and I was like 'I need a size 11 of this snow white grey sneaker' and she's like 'OK Kim's going in the backroom to see if she could find that.' And I just pictured Kim in, like, a foot locker outfit going in the backroom to find a size."

"Literally Kim Kardashian is looking for these shoes for me. They come up dry," he shared, noting that Kim said, 'OK, we're gonna call Kourtney [Kardashian] next.' It was literally the Kardashian clan helping me find shoes for my husband."

So, how did he finally find the highly coveted shoes?

"I ended up going on eBay," he said with a smug smile. "They couldn't even help me out. I bought them on eBay."
