One if my dds tights is constantly ripping by her big toe.

I've tried different companies, cotton, nylon, different sizes.

Sure can't wear a lot of companies as she very thin and a lot of them don't hold up and fall down.
2 max 3 wears and it's already thinning / ripping by the toes. Some nylon tights are literally one time use.

Her toe nails aren't long. I've tried filling them after clipping so they aren't sharp. Nothing works.

It Wrigley be so bad if I didn't hate memfimg so much. But $6-7 a tight for 3x use is expensive. $4 for a single use is insane.
As is, after I fix them, it's another few days and they rip again same spot or a drop over.

Any other tricks I can try?

Sometimes shoes do that. When putting in feet it pulls on tights making it tight. Can she wear those little socks (not sure how they are called) that covers toes and heels?

Do they look like leggings or just like tights? If they look like tights can you post a link?

I wonder. My other kid also gets holes a lot but not half as much as this one.

I highly doubt its the shoes. It happens with shabbos and voucher shoes. Over the years she's has different types of shoes, including loose fitting crocs for all of the summer. Same issue.

Those little socks we tried it a long time ago. It was very uncomfortable. Still have it around if anyone wants to try. Lol.

Thinking about it now, can it be it's her walk because my dh has similar but with his heal. He wears them out. He found a company that is extra strong and he keeps his socks pretty long actually.

Socks and leggings won't fly with her school. Not even attempting it.

Looks like tights since the boot covers the ankle part (where the legging and sock meet).

Google Amazon Basics leggings. Make sure you get full length. (I use capris for exercise but those obviously don’t look like tights.)

Can you try and put ankle socks on top of her tights to protect them? I found I used to have the wear at the toes with trainers and ankle socks changed all that. If she's wearing the same color as the tights, and they are closed shoes/boots, it shouldn't be visible.

Memoi has leggings that are might from right material.

Also walking without shoes only in tights in the house can make the problem worse. Always wear some type of shoes.

Can you put a pair of no-show socks under the tights?
