We study the impact of temporal randomness on the formation of vectorial dispersive shock-waves that emerge due to the interaction of a partially coherent probe wave co-propagating together with an orthogonally polarized intense short pulse. Experiments carried out in a normally dispersive optical fiber demonstrate that the lack of coherence of the probe landscape acts as a strong diffusive term, which is able to hamper or inhibit the vectorial shock formation.
