These are the fastest & best WordPress themes in 2014. I scanned all the best premium & responsive WordPress themes with GTmetrix and if they had a Page Speed Grade of B (80%) or higher they made the cut for fastest. This indicates that they were built with care, ensuring that they were built efficiently. If you want a fast loading, responsive WordPress website, any of these themes will serve you well.

The best WordPress themes were hand-picked because they were deemed the most flexible, clean, elegant, efficient & professional of them all.
