Airi and OceanWP 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: 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 OceanWP comparison with the OceanWP Theme.
The OceanWP Theme
OceanWP is one of the highest rated themes that also has more then 700,000 active installations. This is one of the best themes out there for WordPress, which applies to both the free and pro versions. Originally OceanWP was developed to load very quickly and also to create beautiful professional webshops. Let’s start this OceanWP Review.
OceanWP Theme Demo Websites
When we talk about OceanWP, we are not talking about a small collection of demo websites. How about 220+ complete website layouts, 70 of which can be edited with Elementor and the rest with Gutenberg. Incidentally, the theme is compatible with all Elite page builders that are available for WordPress.
OceanWP & Woocommerce
OceanWP was developed for building shops and the theme is indeed very good at that. The theme has every possible feature that is available for shops to present themselves professionally and to offer maximum comfort for shoppers. Think of things like Quick View, Off Canvas filters, Multi-Step check-out, Add To Cart pop-up, and so much more. The shop can also be shown in multiple styles, and don’t forget all the extras that the Elementor Widget entails.
OceanWP loading Speed
OceanWP is particularly cheap compared to other much less good themes, since it can be used on multiple sites and the price is also very low. This theme is therefore more than worth its price.
OceanWP Theme Review Conclusion
You have come to the end of this OceanWP Theme review. OceanWP is suitable for beginners, experienced web designers and developers. It is a complete theme, so it has everything one can think of. It has beautiful demo designs for both shops and normal websites, many of which were built with the popular page builder Elementor. It also loads very fast, it has the best features for shops. In short, this is an elite theme which is also competitively priced. Recommended!
OceanWP vs Airi
Here’s my opinion at the end of this Airi vs OceanWP 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 OceanWP and Airi 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.
