Kalles and Debutify are both highly popular Shopify themes. Both themes can be used for the construction of very nicely looking webshops. Kalles vs Debutify, which is the better theme? We start with Kalles which does not mean it would be better.
The Kalles Theme
Kalles Theme's Rating
Loading Speed of Kalles
Which theme is not fast loading these days? There are few left. Kalles has also had his speed upgrade and is achieving lightning fast results as can be seen in the GtMetrix speed test below.
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.
Different product swatches
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. Apart form that Kalles also offers 10+ category view 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.
Countdown, Trust Badges, and Upsell
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 Debutify vs Kalles comparison with the Debutify Theme.
The Debutify Theme
The Debutify theme is free, but also has versions that you can do more with and that require payment. Let’s just call it a premium version, that’s how it works with other themes. Debutify claims itself that it is the best theme for conversion in webshops. I wrote a review for this product a year ago and was impressed even then. Let’s start quickly with this Debutify review.
Debutify Review: Load Speed
It is very important for both sites and shops that they load quickly in a browser. Debutify shows great results in this area as can be seen below. They don’t have a page they offer for a speedtest, so just tested their homepage on GtMetrix.
Debutify rates very high
As you can see above, Debutify is highly rated on various platforms. The 5 out of 5 rating on Google is of course exceptional. A good rating is very important for themes, because if many gave a bad rating, we already know that there is something wrong with the theme.
Debutify provides marketing strategies and tools to brand owners that help them maximize revenue growth. It is not enough to optimize for conversions. Debutify focuses on the more important thing, the revenue.
Their Consumer Heuristic Intensification subtly triggers all the “mental shortcuts”, which every human has, and channel it towards one goal: purchasing your products.
Downtimes in stores due to integration issues can lead to store downtimes that cost thousands or even hundreds of thousand per day. Debutify theme, Addons and Apps are built with the Primary Parlance Protocol.
This protocol ensures that the ecosystem communicates using the “language”. You can forget about integration headaches caused by multiple third-party applications and welcome lightning-fast loading speeds.
55+ Shopping Add-Ons
A total of over 55 add-ons just for shopping functions is insane. These add-ons are divided into Cart Maximizers, Loyalty Builders, Conversion Triggers, Shop Protectors. and Shopping Enhancers. I’ll go into more detail about these different categories below.
When they can purchase more, why would customers only buy one item? You can increase your customer’s average order value with Debutify Theme’s Cart Maximizer add-ons. This encourages them to buy more items.
With Debutify theme’s conversion trigger add-ons, make it easy for customers to purchase your products. You will save them time and make it easy for them to buy.
Happy customers are repeat customers. Debutify Theme’s Shopping Enhancer add-ons will make shopping easy for them. These add-ons will ensure that they are happy and content from the moment they start shopping.
From GDPR compliance to getting customers to accept your terms and conditions. The Shop Protector Addons by Debutify Theme protect your store and assets against legal problems so that you can continue selling without worrying.
While customers may move on, the best ones will always return for more. You can keep your customers coming back with Debutify’s loyalty builder add-ons. These are very well known add-on that most stores have.
Best Video Support
If you want to work on your webshop it is so easy that you get a quick answer from support but also that there are videos available for all kinds of standard problems that can arise. Debutify offers more than 100 videos that quickly explain certain things to you. I know of no theme with such an extensive series of tutorials.
EZ Theme Installation
Debutify Theme’s simple installation allows you to create a professional-looking shop in just a few minutes. To ensure you are focusing on the essentials, Debutify Theme will also guide you through the onboarding process.

It’s as simple as clicking the “Install” button to manage your Add-Ons. Each Add-On is designed to work within the Debutify ecosystem so you can spend less time fixing integration problems and more time selling.
There is so much more to tell about Debutify, but I assume I gave you a good impression. If you want to know more, read on on their own site where everything is explained in scents and colors.
Debutify Theme Review Conclusion
Let’s give a final verdict in this Debutify theme review. It should be clear that Debutify can only be used for webshops. In that area, however, it is really one of the best themes out there, regardless of WordPress or Shopify. This theme is very stable, you won’t encounter any errors and it offers you so many tools to make your shop a success that you can’t go wrong with Debutify. If you want to make money with a shop, take Debutify, an absolute must.
Debutify vs Kalles Conclusion
These themes are both great for E-commerce. As good as Kalles is, the Debutify theme is simply one of the very best themes available for building webshops. It is really hard to make a decision, I give Debutify a slight edge. For any type of website other than web shops, I obviously prefer WP-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.
