I was wondering this too. http://www.kick-aid.com/stories.php?story=05/03/29/8983400 PLANT FOOT • Sole should be wider than the foot KICKING/PUNTING FOOT • Sole should be narrower than the foot. hence, kickers usually have a soccer shoe on their kicking foot and a football cleat for the plant foot.
They do this because on their kicking foot, the prefer a soccer cleat because the laces are not placed directly on the kicking surface, (the top of the foot) but instead slightly off center. As for the other shoe, these mismatching kickers generally wear a football cleat or one with better traction than a soccer cleat. This provides for increased stability on the plant foot.
They don't, they have two different shoes usually on their kicking foot they wear a soccer shoes.
Quarterbacks and kickers.
usually sneakers or cleats, :)
Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, a famous return specialist for the houston oilers was the first NFL player to wear withe cleats.
Players can wear metal tipped cleats, plastic tipped cleats, or rubber cleats. Generally, rubber cleats are used when playing on artificial turf and are round. Cleats used outdoors are detachable and can be replaced with a different type or length depending on the playing conditions.

Yes, they can. An NFL team can be entirely composed of kickers if such a team wanted to, but obviously, that would never happen.
yes as long as they are complient with IRB Rules they can be worn
The are no black punters or kickers in the NFL.
During the regular season, defensive backs can wear numbers from 20 to 49. Only quarterbacks, kickers and punters can wear single-digit numbers. So...no corner in the NFL wears number 8.
The NFL cleats that are worn by players can be purchased by the public. Stores that sell sporting goods might have this type of cleat shoe. They average in price from $200 to over $400 for this type of cleat.
