Among individual stocks, Khadim India surged 18 percent to 274, while Liberty Shoes surged 13 percent to 177.95. Meanwhile, Superhouse advanced 11 percent to 209 and Mirza International added 6 percent to 230. Bata India, Relaxo Footwears and Metro Brands also rose up 2-4 percent.

"Footwear stocks made a comeback today as the 55,000 crore footwear market in India is witnessing consumerism once again aided by both values for money and aspirational brands. The sector is likely to see double-digit growth over the next few years aided by very low per capita consumption and should help the half a dozen listed footwear entities gain market share," S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP Securities said.

Campus Activewear introduced the brand 'Campus' in 2005 and is a lifestyle-oriented sport and athleisure footwear company that offers a diverse product portfolio. The company has a network of over 15,000 multi-brand retail stores, company-owned exclusive outlets and e-commerce portals. It has around 17 percent market share in branded sports and athleisure footwear in India and is the largest player in terms of volume (13.6 million pairs).

The IPO will be purely an offer for sale of up to 4.79 crore shares by its existing shareholders and promoters. The proceeds won't come to the company but to its stakeholders. The offer seeks to raise 1,400 crore at the upper end of the price band of 278-292 apiece.

The overall footwear Industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8 percent in FY20-25E whereas the sports and athleisure segment is expected to increase at a CAGR of 15 percent during the same period.

“Campus is an aspirational Indian brand in the footwear category, which caters to economic to the mid-premium category of footwear. Over the last decade, it has grown its volumes at around 20 percent CAGR. Replicating a similar growth trajectory would be a critical factor in sustaining premium valuations,” analysts at ICICI Securities said in an IPO note.
