A football cleat is used to kick the ball as it offers proper grip, strength and balance to the players. Naturally, it is used by football players. However, many local players play bare-footed as it allows them great control of the ball.

It depends. To dribble it is better to use the side of your foot. To shoot a goal it is better to use your toe.
