What we're about

Wayward was founded upon the principles of exploration, a gathering place for the dreamers, the seekers and the adventure enthusiasts. We are dedicated to enhancing the experience of the individual through the highest quality products, a like minded community, and a passion for providing a unique and inspired retail experience in our Wicker Park store.

We live for the wild places, we revel in new cultures, and we pursue adventure with untethered fervor. With a sense of wonder and good times ahead, we are in pursuit of a storied journey, regardless of the destination.

Our passion is to bring unique curated experiences into our store, in partnership with our friends and local community, to connect with and meet more like-minded people through great interactions. From exploring the outdoors and our city, traveling to new places and learning new or enhancing current skills from photography, music, art or writing, we hope to make how you like to explore more enjoyable. We are driven by the open road, craggy peaks, creative culture, and self knowledge, and we hope to meet you along the path.
