Football cleats come in three different designs: low cut cleats that are similar to tennis shoes or standard soccer cleats, mid-rise designs, and high-tops that are similar in shape to basketball shoes. The higher ankle means the cleat is heavier, but also provides more padding and ankle support.

Soccer or football shoes are quite breathable in order to provide some air flow and temperature regulation. However they are only meant to be worn for a couple hours at a time and thus it isn’t as important as for running. Running can sometimes last for several hours, or in the case of a marathon it can last all day.
They are called football boots because, in the early days in Great Britain, where football (soccer) originated, players wore high-top leather boots with metal studs. But in the States and some parts of the world, people call them soccer cleats or football shoes.
Players playing in the four backs positions (scrum-half, fly-half, centre and wing) are more likely to opt to wear football boots because their game is more about speed and kicking. This means the fact football boots are more lightweight and designed for feel rather than just power benefits their style more than what a pair of rugby boots would.
