Players need the traction to accelerate, stop, turn and otherwise maneuver during the course of the game. Some sort of cleats on the boots (shoes) facilitate this. And that's why those shoes were developed and are worn. However, it is important to note that cleated boots or shoes are not required under the Laws of the Game, only that any cleats, it worn, must not be dangerous to anyone else on the pitch.

You can wear soccer cleats to play american football but it is less than ideal. Soccer cleats do not have a stud on the toe of the cleat like football cleats do.

Although if you are a field goal kicker/ punter or kicker in American Football - they all wear soccer cleats.
