Neve and Airi are highly ranked on WordPress.org for the most popular and most downloaded themes. Both themes have a pro and a free version. I will quickly show you the best features of both themes and give my opinion.
The Airi Theme
This Airi theme review will focus on the key features. This theme was created by aThemes and featured on more than 20,000 websites. I have had positive experiences with another theme that was created by aThemes, named Sydney. I suppose Airi has more or less the same to offer. Airi is in the first place a theme that should create great webshops and is easy to understand for beginners and pros.
Airi Theme Review: Ratings
Below you can see on the 2 images the rating of Airi Pro and that of Airi Free. The Airi Free rating can be found on WordPress .org and the other rating comes from the Notorious Themeforest marketplace where the theme has recently been sold as well. However, it is recommended that you just buy on your own site if you intend to.

Airi Theme: Demo Websites
The vast majority of Airi’s demo websites are intended for E-commerce purposes, in other words to build webshops with them. I give below with the images a few examples of the demo websites for different niches. The images can be clicked to view them larger and square. All shops were built with the Woocommerce plugin.

Airi Review: Loading Speed
The Airi Theme is a very fast loading theme, which is not surprising because we call it minimalistic, which has fast loading times as a feature. Below in the image you can see a test done via GtMetrix, a renowned speed test. If you are looking for a super fast loading theme, check Astra, the fastest theme for WordPress that has a lot to offer at the same time.
Airi Review: Page Builders
Airi Review: Header Lay-outs
Below I show you 3 different headers but the Airi theme offers a total of 20+ Header Layouts that you can install in your website with 1 click. Further adjustments to the header can then be made. I’m not going to show it all in this Airi Review, but Airi also has 12+ portfolio layouts and 8+ team layouts.
Airi Review: Blog Lay-outs
We already know that Airi primarily focuses on building shops, but Airi can do much more. For those of you who blog often and want to build a good site for it, it’s good to know that Airi offers different layouts for blogs. I wouldn’t be so quick to use Airi for it myself, but it’s certainly possible. A good theme for blogs is of course Divi.
Airi Theme Review: Settings
Practically all settings for the Airi theme are controlled via the standard WordPress Customizer. Most themes now make use of this, which makes the settings well-arranged. Think of settings for the header, your blog, the footer, sidebar, the shop, copyright, font settings and so on.
Airi Theme Review Conclusion
Thank you so much for reading my Airi Theme Review for the year. Airi is capable of a lot. Even in the free version, the demo layouts look great. Airi can be used to build any kind of website. You can access all themes from AThemes for a bit more than one theme. As Divi shows, memberships often offer more value than just one theme. Airi operates great in combination with the Elementor page builder.
Let’s continue this Airi vs Neve comparison with the Neve Theme.
The Neve Theme
In this Neve Theme Review, let’s see if this theme is really as multi- functional as its builders claim. The theme should be lightning fast, suitable for blogs, corporate websites and webshops. Like many other well-selling themes, Neve has built up a name as a popular free theme to start with.
Neve's Rating 4.8/5
The Neve theme has built up an impressive rating on WordPress.org as shown in the image below. In addition to the rating figures, you can see a few comments from users, the opinions about this theme are on average very good.
Neve Review Starter Sites
Neve is full of starter sites, also called demo websites that can be installed with 1 click. As is the case with Astra, Neve offers starter sites specially made for the various top page builders. In this way, everyone is catered for with designs for his favorite page builder from which he can start his project. These are features that we have to give full marks for, beautiful!
Neve Theme's loading Speed
Websites today need to load quickly to attract visitors and to get good results in Google’s search results. Below you can see a test where I tested Neve. The test was performed after installing WP-Rocket, the best cache plugin out there for WordPress, and with optimized images. The test was done at GtMetrix.
Neve Theme Review: Woocommerce
Neve is a multipurpose theme but is less than a little specialized in the field of webshops. There are many features that make an online store look really professional. In addition, there are many settings to adjust product pages, check out et cetera. There are also several layouts provided for these types of pages that you can choose from.
Neve Footer & Header Builder
The Neve theme has a fantastic system for styling your header and footer down to the last detail. Also very nice is the incredibly extensive documentation that Neve provides not only for the Header Builder but for all the features we covered in this Neve Theme Review. You can find the documentation by clicking on “Docs” in the main menu under “Support”.
Neve Extra Information
There is so much more to tell about Neve. For example, the theme has an Elementor Booster, a Blog Booster, Flipcards as shown below and a large number of other features. I want to keep this Neve review short and to the point, but if it piqued your interest, just continue reading on their own website.
Neve Theme Review Conclusion
The Neve Theme has several impressive features including the beautiful demo layouts that are already prepared for the different page builders. The many features for web shops also immediately catch the eye. There is also the complete series of boosters (plugins) that make it a great theme. Neve deserves its top rating and is definitely recommended for building any type of website.
Airi vs Neve Conclusion
Here’s my opinion at the end of this Neve vs Airi test. As far as loading time is concerned, these themes are approximately the same. As far as I’m concerned, both themes score equally high, because it is also difficult to make a choice between Airi and Neve when it comes to scoring beautiful demo layouts and ease of use. These are 2 elite themes that should rank high in any theme ranking.
