I depends on who and how you are playing. If it is just backyard footballl with some buddies, then sneakers are fine. On the other hand, if it is any kind of competitive play, cleats are a must.

not shoes, Boots. (A little joke, lol). Most football cleats have one extra cleat on the bottom of the shoe at the end of the toe for additional traction. This extra cleat puts soccer players at a high risk for injuring other players if they accidentally kicked someone so the extra cleat is not designed on soccer cleats (AKA Association Football Boots). Most American football kickers actually wear at least one soccer shoe (on their kicking foot) to get the maximum kicking effect on the field. However, football linemen tend to wear cleat-ed shoes with a high-top ankle design to help prevent ankle twists, so it depends what position someone plays and what kind of traction that person needs as to whether or not soccer cleats can be used.
