The company is a parody of Nike, however Eris means 'strife' in Greek, whereas Nike means 'victory' (despite 'nike' in Greek being pronounced 'nee-kay'). The logo is also somewhat similar to that of DC Shoes because of letter "E" being inverted, much like the "D" and "C". There are radio advertisements for one Eris product in GTA San Andreas, called Pump-Up shoes, a parody of the real life Nike Air Jordan basketball shoes, which also sported inflatable air pockets inside the shoe. According to Eris, 'women love winners, and winners wear shoes.'
   
  +
Company radio advertisements in GTA III explain the "benefits" of working for the company. The company employee, [[Joey (Eris)|Joey]], a child who "sewed his hands together", may be nodded towards the sparked conflicts/strikes between Nike and people against child labor who found out Nike's soccer balls were made by children in the Middle East. In addition to this, one of the founders and board members of Eris, [[Pete Vassal]] was involved in a steroid scandal in 2008, bringing even more controversy to the company.

Eris logo

Tagline(s): "Bring chaos to your feet"
Type: Athletic Shoes and T-Shrits
Owner: Pete Vassal
Appearance(s): Grand Theft Auto III

Eris is a manufacturing company for athletic shoes and apparel featured in both the 3D Universe and HD Universe.

DescriptionEdit

The company is a parody of Nike, however Eris means 'strife' in Greek, whereas Nike means 'victory' (despite 'nike' in Greek being pronounced 'nee-kay'). The logo is also somewhat similar to that of DC Shoes because of letter "E" being inverted, much like the "D" and "C". There are radio advertisements for one Eris product in GTA San Andreas, called Pump-Up shoes, a parody of the real life Nike Air Jordan basketball shoes, which also sported inflatable air pockets inside the shoe. According to Eris, 'women love winners, and winners wear shoes.'

Company radio advertisements in GTA III explain the "benefits" of working for the company. The company employee, Joey, a child who "sewed his hands together", may be nodded towards the sparked conflicts/strikes between Nike and people against child labor who found out Nike's soccer balls were made by children in the Middle East. In addition to this, one of the founders and board members of Eris, Pete Vassal was involved in a steroid scandal in 2008, bringing even more controversy to the company.

Inaccessible Eris shops can be found throughout Liberty City and San Andreas, although the player can buy Eris T-shirts at any Binco store available in San Andreas.

In GTA IV, you can see pedestrians wearing Eris clothing and footwear and backpacks, etc. Despite this, the player cannot wear anything made by Eris.

In GTA V, the player can find Eris shoes boxes inside Sub Urban and Discount Stores throughout San Andreas. The brand itself is also featured in the Leopolds store in Rockford Hills.
