The best them on Shopify hands down. Great features and flexibility. Easily the best $180 I've spent this year!

BRVO Nov 03, 2011

Simply a beautiful theme that is simple to implement, edit and manage. After some experience with other themes within the Shopify theme library, I feel comfortable in saying that this is the best theme available, without question. Spend the extra $60ish dollars and get the best theme out there.

This is the best $180 I have spent on my business. Such a beautifully made template, inside and out. The comprehensive (& cool) feature set is second to none. I was pleasantly surprised by how simple & easy it was to customize everything. Support has been amazing as well. A BIG THANK YOU! :)

I've been really pleased with this theme, it has all the functionality I need and more! It has allowed me to accomodate our own design and is so simple to use. Clean themes have also been super supportive in getting my website up and running so I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your support! Thanks so much! codysteel.com
