Hello, no these Salomon Speedcross trainers are not Gortex lined. However they are a superb trainer providing you have slim feet, I always use short ankle length Sealskinz socks with these trainers when trail running, result perfectly dry feet at the end of the run no matter what the weather.

Only the GTX version are Gore Tex, I have a pair of both and the difference is noticeable, but they are both great trail running shoes 👍

Hello there, I've been wondering the same thing, I have found however! the little symbol on the top right of the bullet point, picture when your looking at the range of shoes, tells you wither it is or not,. Listen always look for the Gore tex symbol. If it's no were to be seen it's not Gore tex hope this helps. May I also say, that if you scroll around the shoe, trainer, there will be a little tag indicating gore tex..

Doesn’t say they are as far as I can see , fabric material is some kind of nylon mesh , doesn’t affect i5 when wet

No. A lot of trail running shoes aren't waterproof but designed to let water in and out quickly.

The goretex ones don't dry out as quickly once wet, due to not breathing aswell, in my experience.

I don't have this shoe in these colours. I have 3 pairs in other colours that arn't waterproof. Check out Merrell on the OutdoorGB website. They'll state GTX or Goretex if waterproof.

The ones I got where not gore tex, I think the new model is though. I personally don't like gore tex as the shoes made from that material need about a week to dry.
