They're for your socks. I, unfortunately, don't have those... so my socks are always falling down during the course of a game. Shin guard tape helps though.

I double using them to keep my daughters Stroller together when not playing since the holding clip broke. I had an airline loader from Buffalo say "dude, that is A great idea, these things (strollers) never stay together. Damn clips are always broken!"
