Kalles Theme Review: Demos
More than 50+ homepage layouts for you to choose from. Just not as much as the Minimog theme which has 70+, but that is not necessary. The demos are extremely neat and come across as very professional. With Kalles you will have no problem providing a nice layout for your webshop.
Video + 3D support
Just a few pictures with the products is no longer enough these days. The fashion is small videos and 3D presentations. Kalles offers you the latest in web shops.
Let your buyers know what other buyers bought along with the purchase they want to make. This way you sell extra products and you make more profit.

Products often have many variations and it is important to present this in a good way so that buyers can immediately select their preference. Kalles displays swatches exactly the way you want them.
Pick your lay-out style
Products can be displayed in multiple ways and everyone has a personal preference. The Kalles Theme offers you 15+ different product layouts to choose from.

Shopify themes do not have real layout builders such as WordPress themes, but that is hardly necessary with so much variation.

Kalles Review: Mega Menus
Megamenus are very popular at the moment, so all themes offer them. The problem is that one must have enough content to present a well-extended impressive mega menu. Actually, this feature is mainly for larger webshops.
Kalles Theme Review Conclusion
Let’s end this review for Kalles. If you want to know more about the theme, read more on their own site. My opinion is that the Kalles theme is a real winner. It has the potential to become the best selling Shopify theme on Themeforest soon. There is simply nothing to criticize about the theme, which was immediately visible from the flawless rating it has.
Let’s continue this Minimog vs Kalles comparison with the Minimog Theme.
The Minimog Theme
Minimog Theme's Rating
When we talk about the best ratings on the Themeforest marketplace, we should certainly not forget the Minimog theme. An average rating of 4.98 out of 5 is of course hard to beat. With this, the theme immediately scores high, practically everyone who bought it is extremely satisfied with it.
Minimog's Loading Speed
Fast loading times are very important today. Visitors leave websites that don’t load fast enough without compassion. A theme is therefore more or less required to have a good loading time, Minimog has that as shown above.
70+ Stunning Homepage Demos
More than 70+ homepage demos, all shopping layouts of course. You have a wide choice of designs and they are built for different niches. Like all top themes, Minimog serves you well with demos.
Detailed Instruction Videos
A theme can have thousands of features, but you must also be able to work with it. The Minimog theme offers clear videos about practically everything you can think of. You can always continue working without having to ask the builders questions. At least, this is kept to a minimum by the videos.
Minimog Theme Review: Mobile First
Play the videos to see how certain features function flawlessly on mobile view. The Minimog theme is mobile first, in other words everything has been done to achieve perfection in operability, loading speed, and design for mobile phones. Nowadays many people shop on their mobile so this is quite important.
Minimog's easy install + Try free with Foxkit app
Minimog is one of the few themes that you can really try installed before you spend your money. Of course, you lose a lot of time if the theme turns out not to be that great and you have to start over. The chance of this is very small, however, since the theme has an almost flawless rating.
Minimog's Features: In-Cart Offer
Minimog has many features that can bring you more sales. One of these is the In-Cart Offer feature with which you can recommend extra products in the customer’s shopping cart in a very simple way, without technical knowledge. Watch the 1 minute video below.
Minimog is full of features. Watch this small video for an overview of the many features or go directly to the Minimog site where you will get all the information about it.
Nice variation in Shop pages
Minimog is really well set up for building a professional looking website easily and quickly. You can simply choose the layout for your shop pages and the choice is huge.
Nice variation in Product pages
And the same goes for the product pages. A wide choice of layouts that have been well thought out. If you ever want something different later on, it’s just a few clicks away. WordPress themes nowadays have an E-commerce Builder with which you can organize everything yourself how you want, but for Shopify this is already a luxury.
Minimog Theme Review Conclusion
I’m going to end this review for Minimog. I assume that you got a very good impression of the theme, just like I did. Of course, it all started with the very good rating, so we’re not the only ones who are impressed. The theme has everything and much more to set up a great webshop. In addition, its installation is extremely simple and fast. Recommended. Read on on there own website.
Minimog vs Kalles Conclusion
These themes are both great for E-commerce. As good as Kalles is, the Minimog theme is simply one of the very best themes available for building webshops. It is really hard to make a decision, I give Minimog a slight edge. For any type of website other than web shops, I obviously prefer WordPress Themes. Of course WordPress is a different CMS system, so if you have a preference for WordPress or Shopify that will also have to be taken into account when deciding which theme is more suitable for you.
