Albanese Shoes and Sports LLC formerly Albanese Shoe Center was founded by Vincent (Vinnie) Albanese Jr. in 1955.  The store has been in the same location since its inception, with the exception of a fire the store has remained unchanged.  In April 2012 the store was purchased by John and Shelly Albanese also of Canastota.  John is a cousin of Vinnie's and thus the store remains in the family.

John and Shelly are both graduates of Canastota high School and still reside in the Town of Lenox.  Both have stayed active in the community, have been active with the Wampsville Volunteer Fire Department, donating time to the local sports youth groups, John has coached football and wrestling at the youth level and high school level.

John and Shelly have two sons, Wyatt  and Owen both attend Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) majoring in engineering.  Both are graduates of Canastota where they excelled at Academics, Football and Wrestling.  Both wrestled at college level.
