For grip. When boots were first worn they were working boots and the studs were flat. Protruding studs made of wood were created and these were nailed into the shoe sole. These later were made of rubber moulding and later alluminium screw in versions. Studs were and are used to provide grip in grass and muddy conditions thus allowing plays greater maneuverability
