Need education on shoe trees (AE last # 5)

I have always used shoes trees on my AE's shoes (last 3 & last 4), but recently purchased a pair of AE Strands in 7.5E which is on the #5 last (long and narrow). I have tried both styles of their small shoe trees (full toe and adjustable toe) and neither one seem to fill-out the entire front end of the shoes. I would estimate that the front 1.5 inches of the shoes aren't touching the shoe tree.

Is the shoe tree supposed to fill-out the entire front of the shoes?

Is there a better fitting shoe tree for the AE last # 5?

Thanks

I wouldn't worry about it, I dont think you're going to find one that fills it perfectly unless its a lasted tree. As long as its snug and fills most of the toe box....
