Closed toe describes a shoe or a sandal that is closed or partially closed at the front. Some closed toe styles, such as oxfords, loafers and mules, have completely enclosed fronts, while closed toe sandals, such as the fisherman sandal, have a protective closed toe area but open sides, which allow water to drain away from the foot.
Heels are shoes featuring an incline on the heel. Heels could be a separate piece from the outsole or a wedge heel that runs the entire length of the outsole. The heel provides elevation and can be found in many different shapes, including block, tapered, blade, and wedge. Heels can also be many different heights such as kitten heel, stilleto heel, low heel, mid heel or high heel.
Platform describes footwear with raised, thick soles of at least one and a half inches in height. Platform soles are often made of cork, plastic, rubber or wood and are generally worn for fashion or to add height.

I bought this shoe because I wanted a fun-looking black clog style shoe that would be comfortable and add height. This shoe does that perfectly for me. I would have given it 5 stars except that the quality of the shoe is a bit lacking for the pickier side of me. But not enough so that I didn't want to keep them. Also, I apparently didn't read the item details closely enough as I was surprised that they were a molded plastic foot bed/heel and not actual wood, like they look to me. Not to worry, still look great on my feet and are really comfortable.

I absolutely love the way this shoe looks, however the fit is a little uncomfortable. I wear a lot of heels, most taller than these but these were very uncomfortable. They felt smaller than the size I ordered and I got a huge blister on the side of the ball of my foot. I have 6 inch heels that I can wear longer and walk better in than these 4 1/2 inch heels.
