Shoe Trees: If it fits, you mustn't acquit?

I placed an AE shoe tree into one of my boots and it's tight but I was able to get it in with some elbow grease. It wasn't exceptionally tight and I didn't have to jam it in - it was significantly tighter than my other shoes.

If it's too tight, the spring will have greater force applied to the ends, and I'm wondering if I need to worry about any undue hardship on the leather due to it. Or, is the leather strong enough?

Thanks in advance.
