  1. Hey! You have shared a great collection of some really well designed WordPress themes. However, I think a common downside with few of these themes will be their long page load time!

    1. Well, page load time really depends on how the theme is programmed by that developer. I would say not every theme is fast and not every theme is slow 🙂
