With Google's Core Web Vitals in mind, I'm looking for a template.
Fast loading and clean.
In the past, I often choose to minor change the OC template myself.
Because no other one is cleaner neither faster.

Are there OC 3.0.3.7 premium templates with a, not good, but great performance?

It also depends what you're specifically looking for as a theme - categorically speaking. You could, either, look for reviews on Google or look on the Marketplace. There are also Opencart partners on this site that do publishes Opencart themes from their websites.

The problem is that mostly poor developed themes are offered.
In this post of 2016 it's made very clear: viewtopic.php?t=157098

Because of the May Google update for Core Web Vitals I can't depend on reviews given by users which think a good looking theme is the most important.

The theme of Antropy is an option https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=36706
or the the Shop Me theme are for now the best options for me.

But there should be more good options?

The "Shop Me" theme I bought is a no-go.
The performance is dramatically.
Anybody any advice for a theme with high performance?

That is exactly what I am looking for also but no luck... I am comming from wordpress where everyone knows which themes are optimised, but here seems like nobody ever heard about it :-\
I will pass the info if I find anything.

Thanks Marek,

I decided to build my own theme.
I need also high performance to beat my competitors.
With the coming May update from Google it'll be a ranking factor.
There're to many shop owners how focus on the beauty of their template.
UX is much more important.

There's enough info online to make a theme yourself if you want to.
Because of time saving I was looking for one, but didn't find.
