Shaping goalie pads
I recently bought new goalie pads and I want to know how to break them in and give them better shape, I've had them for about 3 months already, thanks.

(I have Eagle Infintys 2005)

Those pads should be broken in already. Especially since they are Eagles and it's been 3 months.

But one hint is; Before you put your pad on, put both hands on the top of the pad and press down on it while it's upright. The pad should bend at the bottom (where your ankle would be) and where your knee should be. It will soften them up a little.

Store your pads upside down. Not only is this practical for drying, but it also maintains the "S" shape of the pads.
If you want to go even further, you can crunch them into an S and tie them up using some shoelace or rope. Store them like this and they'll be game ready each and every time.

Use them ... sweat the crap out of them and you should be good. I also agree with drying the face down ...
