Premium templates are usually designed for specific uses of WordPress, not only blogs. For example: landing pages, consultation website, presentation website.
Another aspect of premium themes is that they have advanced options that you can change directly from your administration panel. They have advanced features meant to avoid template programming.
If you want to get things done faster then a premium template is the right choice for you.
Here is a list with 10 premium templates that i like the most.
1. Yamidoo Pro
Yamidoo Pro is a premium theme provided by WpZoom . Apart of the good looking of this theme, you have a nice slider on the blog homepage. I like sliders and you should too, you give your visitors a better option to view your posts without scrooling down.
We first moved from full posts on the homepage to show only summaries so the user to read only posts he is interested into. Then we added descriptive thumbnails to every summary so he can make a faster decision. Now we give to visitor the option to just wait and see what is happening on our blog.
This theme have the slider, then the latest posts from 4 featured categories, and after that the posts are listed in the old way.
