Agree that's a rim shoe in the second pic - I used also used them and liked them for mountain riding.

The first pic is not a keg shoe, however It's what we always called a slick shoe that sometimes folks put borium on the toes and heels (still not making a real keg shoe) and sometimes they don't

This is a legitimate keg shoe

So the ultimate difference is the rim shoe gives a better break over point and has better traction for different terrains as opposed to the current shoe he has on now.
