Holey tights - what am I doing wrong?

Every time I wear a pair of tight 15 denier or less a hole appears by the right toe. Usually the first time I wear them, sometimes may get two days out of a pair. It's infuriating and getting expensive.

Doesn't matter what brand, same problem. I keep toenails trimmed so it's not that. Tried wearing non ladder tights, all it means is that the ladder doesn't change into a ladder but my toe still pokes through.

I wondered if i needed a bigger size. I currently wear large which is recommended for my height, 5'10", and I'm a size 10 so not stretching them laterally too much. I do have large feet (size 9) which may mean more length, is required but surely not enough to cause this issue.

Any ideas or recommendations? I'd be really grateful.

I'd try a larger size or another brand.

I wear something like these in my tights, they last for ever.
