Why do shoe boxes have a hole in them?

Like what is the real reason why like every single shoe box (except a few) has a hole somewhere in it or has like a little pop in/out thing to make a hole? What does it even matter? and does it make a difference hole or not?

    Ventilation so the shoes don't get tarnished with moisture from stale air. Also like Sidney said. It makes in easier to pluck out of a stack in the warehouse.

    I always stuck my thumb in there, and it's easier to pull out that way if the boxes are in a big stack.
